I just got back from my visit to MD Anderson and had a platelet count of 89. My last readings from about 4 months ago were 166. I was very shocked by how low these levels were. Dr Keating was not worried about this at all. He said it could be from having a cold which I had a couple weeks ago or from the flu shot which I had about 2 weeks ago. He just said we will retest your blood in 3 months. Anyone had their platelets drop like this in just a couple months? I did have a reading of 138 before but nothing under that. My other numbers are WBC 25 and ALC 18.
