Advice please lovely people. I have a buried wisdom tooth, and need an operation to remove it, but my recent blood test showed a count of 58. This is a great count for me, but I've been told by the hospital that I will need steroid treatment 3 weeks before the operation to boost my platelets. I've had my ITP for years, but have managed to avoid any treatment ie steroids, so I'm slightly anxious as to what to expect from taking steroids, and I don't know what steroids they are going to give me yet. Feeling nervous!
