Hello! I am new here as I just started doing lots of research on ITP. My 4 year old daughter had unusual bruising on her legs and I took her to the children’s hospital in my area. They performed blood test right away and everything came back in the normal range except for her platelets which were at 46. She has been sick off and on for about 3 months with the flu, then followed by a cold and then strep throat. I am really scared but trying to stay positive. She is being referred to a Hemotologist/Oncologist tomorrow. What should I expect at this appointment? If her platelets are moving in the right direction, how fast to the climb back up?
