I've been to the hospital today, my platelets were up a bit from 375 to 465. Haem just said they would keep an eye on it, I'm still a bit anaemic too. But don't go back til Feb next year.
I mentioned the pain under the ribs, and that the scan showed the spleen was a normal size but she just said if spleen was ok that was all they were interested in.
So back to the GP again with that mystery pain. It comes and goes, I'd love to know what's causing it Sometimes when I lay awake in the night I get quite worried about what it might be. But I have no other symptoms. It feels like I have 2 lots of gall stones - a set at each side!! I do like to be different.
I had blood taken at the hospital for the GP as well, as the phlebotomist at the doctors finds it impossible to get blood from me (I do like to see the colour of their money first). Last time she tried she ended up catching a nerve and I had a "dead" arm for the rest of the day, and I also had bruised and swollen arms and hands, and still she didn't manage to get any blood from me! The results will be the same as for the haem but I will still have to see the GP, maybe the new locum will have a magic answer for the under rib pain!
On the plus side there was a second hand book sale in the foyer and I got several paperbacks for 50 p each!
