my mom is 72 years old and is waiting to have her gallbladder removed . her platet count is only 64000 and it should be in the 100,000 from what i understand. she has had 2 plalet tranfusions already . she is in alot of pain due to the gallballer . she is bloated now cause of the organs . it has been 14 or 15 days since they said they needed to remove the gallbadder that is infected. they took her off the medicine called heprin . my mom needs this operation as soon as possible cause to me she is only getting worse. i believe that their is a reason why her plalets are not reproducing like they should be. she also said that at night she gets dizzy and feel sick to her stomach to the point that it is scaring her. please someone give me some kind of help before my mom does not make to the surgery that she needs due to her plalet count being to low .

  • i was just wondering did you ever find out why your plalet count was low and what did they do to make it start producing more plalets ,(i may not have worded that right)not that this would have anything to do with your mum, but i have very low platelet counts and this was because i have (recovering i think) had chronic ITP which meant my body was killing my platelets (a confusion in my body, thinking they were bad or a virus)i'm sure this would be ruled out by the doctors, as they would have noticed if it was this.i got many transfusions, and it was just time that made me better, my platelets rose. I excersized carefully and ate better....I had some chinese medicine which i believed helped...goodluck

  • My daughter has very low platelet count 30, her platelets are also being attacked but the doctors don't know why. Anyone else have this disease and what has been done. Have others with low platelets ever had ecoli?
