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 .
