Hi all, can anyone give me an idea on this. My daughter of 4 was given the intravenous immunoglobulin after being admitted to hospital following a couple of nosebleeds. She was diagnosed with ITP at the end of July and I thought she was starting to get better as she hadnt had anymore bruises in the last couple of weeks and then had this bad bleed.
She had the IV on the Thursday and was discharged on Friday. She woke up on Saturday morning with a nosebleed that stopped quite quickly and then throughout the day had 3 more all that only lasted a minute or 2. Since Saturday she hasnt had any bleeding, bruises etc.
Is it normal for the bleeds to carry on a couple of days after the IV or should the IV have stopped this immediately?
Her count was 4 and she'll be going back Thursday for more bloods
