Hi, I live in Norway,Diagnosed with ITP in febuary just ONE week before I long planned surgery to my eyelids, Ofcourse no surgery. Had lower than 5 in platlets when I had to be hospitalised asp. had petechiae on my legs for a few days, nosebleed a cracked blood vessel on my eye. I decided to see the emergency doctor when
I also had bruises
emerge on my arms and legs. Had platlets infusion , stayed in hospital for 3days had some more infusions ( something immune stuff) and then they gave me the pills, The cortison, Prednisolon. Glad they just gave me 50 as a start dose. Platlets quicly rise and now I am at 298!!!only 1,5 month later. I am hoping I will not have this ITP permently but I have been reading a lot about it and I guess,there is a great risk of it being permantly. Question: anyone had surgery while on cortison tablets (5mg) ?
