My Husband has had ITP for around 1.5yrs and during this period he has had tried lots of treatments to which none have worked. He has been on Romiplostim for around 10mths and his counts have yo-yo'd however this is due to getting a higher amount of the drug and then the body getting used to this, then his counts go down. Right now he is on 4viles of the drug which is more than the maximum he is supposed to get as the doctor is questioning if there is any other drug to try. He has referred him for a splenectomy and we are a little nervous.
