Hi . I developed Itp 5.5 month ago. I know I have it after a stressful episode of my life 😐
Now , during this time I've been reading articles about Itp. They suggest to wait e years before doing splenectomy. Personally , I know a woman in my relatives who had it during pregnancy and took 2 years of steroids to reach 70k off treatment .
I've tried rituxrituximab that didn't work for me . Now starting nplate. That have me 121k (I've also taken 25mg steroids during this time)
My first question is does mode of treatment, steroids or nplate , effect the chance of getting better in this disease ?
My second question is that if there's going to be an improvement that is meaningful, how is that ? I've been on 8k for a month and around 10k for rest of the time , but I've been around 20k and also had 31k too . Does this have a meaning ?
Personally, 10k is enough for me off treatment ☺
