I'm a 24 year old male who has been diagnosed with ITP about 2\3 weeks ago. My platelets were 2 when I was taken to hospital but have since rose to 28. Is there any advice out there for people living with this condition. Currently taking 95mg if a steroid I don't remember the name of. Going for a bone marrow examination next Friday as well. Any advice for the examination? I heard it can be quite painful.
