Do you experienced high platlet with ... - ITP Support Assoc...
I have experienced 250k then drop back to below 10k. I have been trying to find out what the factors were that caused this drastic change. Stress? Diet? a drug prescribed for an alleged unrelated reason. Any of the factors mentioned could be the reason. What have you done that is different from your usual routine or diet?
Have you been diagnosed with ITP, what treatment regime were you given, what is your platelet count range, are your counts auto machine or manual? Manual vary by labs and technicians, UIC manual counts are 3-5 times that of auto; a count 22K in the ER became 115K when repeated by lab manually. Normal platelet count=150-450 thousand so 434K is great but I’m surprised your doctor is willing to wait 4 weeks post-op for a repeat count.
I receive weekly counts and Nplate injections to maintain platelets between 30-80 thousand will drop as low as 9-20K with illness, depression, and increased stress. I was started on Nplate in 2010 and had a count 100K three times in the past 8 years. Hopefully you will maintain your 434K platelet count.
I was on 78k and then had an ear infection which took me to over 200k. Other itp patients have experienced this strange change. It is thought that our immune system is busy fighting the infection and leaves the platelets alone.
Perhaps you have experienced a similar situation but it is best to discuss these things with your Doctor.
