Talk to me about Immune Thrombocytopenia Purpura
The #2 son has been diagnosed with it. So far the high dose steroids haven't worked. After about 10 days his platelets dropped again this time to only 8,000. I'm an R.N. but have been retired for a few years so I'm way out of the loop for treatments. Last night they started him on IVIg. I say they when I mean the Army. He is the 1 that was in Iraq last year. ( Now the #3 son is there)
From what I've been reading the treatment methods are varied with sometimes less than successful results.
If anyone has any information they wouldn't mind sharing I would appreciate it so much.
Thanks everyone, Bev
