Is it back?

I was diagnosed in 06 with non-hodgkins lymphoma. After surgery to remove a tumor, chemo and radiation and almost a year i was informed it was in remission. Now after 2 blood tests around 6 monmths apart i was informed that my platelet has dropped to 143. Levels are supposed to be between 140 and 415. Is this an early sign that my cancer may have returned again?

Not really. It may be that you are just a little under the weather. You know low immune system. I have had the same thing happen to me after I was diagnosed with NH Lymphoma in 2005. Just keep the faith. Stay positive on getting better.

I wouldn't think so.  My platelet counts are still near the 140 level and my oncologist tells me it still due to the chemo in 2008.  I was diagnosed in 2006 but no chemo until 2008.

What my doctor watches is the auto immune or SED RATE count.  Keep the faith, be positive and if worried. . . see the doctor and ask for lab tests.
