Hi every one I have been diagnosed with ITP in the summer of 2006 from that year on forward i was in and out of the hospital either that or in the outpatient unit. I have been given several medications first it was prednisone which i was not to fond of it then I was given rituxan,WinRho, decadron and IVIG the only medication that has helped Is the IVIG. My platelets go sky rocket high with this medication. I did have my spleen removed in the summer of 2007. In Oct of 2012 was my last IVIG while I was hospitalized. I was so happy because it had been over two years since the last IVIG and hospitalization. But sad to say Sept 2015 my platelets fell to 11,000 i had petechiae on both if my legs which I new something was wrong. I received platelets given decadron and IVIG my hospital stay was for 4 days and i have been off work since sept 25,2015. I am returning on Oct 5 which I still don't feel to good I feel light headed get headaches off and on and fatigue.... well that's my journey.
