Low Platelets

Hi all - just wondering if anyone has had this before. My husband went to the GP about 6 weeks ago as his glands in his groin were raised. He had a blood test which showed low platelets. They asked him to come back in for another test 5 weeks later- results have just come back in and platelets still low.

He has a review with the doctor booked in for a week but being a highly anxious person I have of course googled it and now regret doing so!

Just wondering if anyone else had had something like this...

DS2 had ITP - zero platelets for a while and then low for a year. He had a bone marrow biopsy to rule out other conditions but that was all clear.

Best wishes smile

Oh thank you - that's so kind of you you to reassure me - glad your son's turned out to be nothing. smile
