Since Sep 2007, my 5 year old boy was found to have low red cell count, low white cell count & low platelets count. He bruises easily. In Oct 2007, bone marrow aspiration & terphine biopsy was done, comment was Slightly hypocellular marrow with histocytosis consistent with post viral cytopenia.
Until now, his blood count is still low and he bruise easily, and very slow recovery from fever or infections. Other than the bruises & slow recovery & blood test reports & a bit pale, he is in fact very active.
Drs only say it's post viral syndrome, once the body recover from it, all the counts will go back to normal.
Can the post viral syndrome drag on for so long??? Would appreciate if anyone could give some advice n suggestions.
