My 4 year old was diagnosed 6 months ago and in that time her platelets have rarely been above 6. We had an appointment on Tue and the plan was to give her a short term dose of steroids as we were taking a short domestic flight on Sunday (yesterday). However her platelets had gone up to 41 so we didn't do anything (we were obviously delighted!!)
However she now is really not themself, complaining of a sore tummy, saying she doesn't feel well, she's cold, etc. I'm certain it's not anything to do with itp(she's probably just coming down with something) but what should I be on the lookout for, in terms of affects from flying? I've tried searching online but not found much of use and I'm not quite worried enough to give the hospital a ring!? I really should have gone over this with the doc on Tue but we were all so excited about her count!
