Hubby has had itp for more than two months now, lots of drugs and nothing working. He has another 4 months of full pay at work and then will be on statutory sick pay. We are now in the planning stages of me having to go back to work full time (very reluctantly by him - he wants to be able to provide for his family). Is there anyone who works full time with single digit platelet count? He is a machine tools engineer and we don't know whether his employer will allow him to go back to work if he can't get his count high enough? Bad enough worrying about his health don't want money worries to trouble him too.
