My granddaughter was diagnosed with itp September 24, 2015. The past month she has been in the hospital three times. First time got igiv and went from 10000 to 130000 in a week but next week down to 7000. Back in the hospital with two treatments of
Ivig and up to 66000 the next week. Next week down to 14000 back in hospital with one treatment of ivig and 5 days of prednisone. Last day of prednisone on Monday and back to doctor on Tuesday. She has a phobia of blood and needles and starting therapy for help. This last time in hospital when they put in the iv she fought so hard ended up with lots of bruises even on her face. Thinking about getting second opinion from Boston Children Hospital. Has anyone received treatment there?
