Thrombocytopenia

Posted by Strong Enough 2011 @strongenough2011, Sep 19, 2011

Has anyone been diagonsed with this and if so, what symptoms do you have? I was told last week that my platelets were “off”, and I had to get them rechecked. I am awaiting those results to see if they are ok or still dropping. I am very tired all the time, have lost 10 pds so far since Jan, swollen lymph nodes, itchy skin and occasional night sweats.

I have had a lymph node bioposy that ruled out Lymphoma but I have not had any bone marrow tested for it. Is this condition related to the bone marrow and if so should I ask to get my bone marrow tested to be 100% sure that there is no cancer and that it is not misdiagonised?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Just Want to Talk group.

HOW DID YOU MAKE OUT WITH THIS? I was diagnosed with Primary Polycythemia Vera last friday, and it is similar. Did you have a bone marrow test? I hope to hear from you. My name is Lynn. Thank You.
