Hi everyone! Well I went to the itp patient day last Friday at Hammersmith hospital. My daughter came with me as my husband was working. I found it quite interesting even if I didn't really understand a lot of the jargon about the immune system, t cells etc! I didn't learn anything about itp that I hadn't heard before, other than I should probably get the flu vaccination done as I am on immune suppressant drugs. There wasn't much of an opportunity to chat to other itp patients, which I would have liked. A lot of people there seemed to have a lot of questions they wanted to ask but there wasn't much time for that either. Apparently this was the first itp patient day, so hopefully any in the future will be less listening to lectures about how complicated itp is and how it has different causes and affects everyone differently. We know that only too well!
