Hello, I am new to this site and wondered if anyone can answer my questions.
My 35 yr old daughter has ulcerative colitis which is currently active and she is 34 weeks pregnant.
A month ago she went to the emergency with severe cramping and it was discovered that her platlets were at 9. She was given transfusions and 3 days of steroids.
Three weeks later here platlets dropped to 121 and 2 days later they were 81.
5 days later they were 47 and she was sent home without any treatment.
She is bleeding quite severely from the colitis.
how low can her platelets go before causing damage to her body or to the baby?
What are the symptoms she should be watching or?
