Platelets and exercise
Comment rather than question:
At 6 mos. post-TX, my platelets are finally edging back towards normal.  At 129,000, I am only 11,000 below my lab's normal range.  Sounds pitifully low, but is terrific for me.  I'm so tired of being a walking bruise.  I'm pretty sure that my interferon response has kept my bone marrow suppressed for longer than I like but another factor may be responsible for the rise besides the fading of the IFN effect.  My brother suggested that my return to the gym has improved my platelet recovery.  It makes sense.  Platelets are formed in the bone marrow; put a little more pressure on the bones and platelet formation is activated.  When I googled platelets & exercise I found that high platelet levels may be caused by strenuous exercise or high altitude living.  Doh!  Here's a very good reason that you should force yourself off of the couch in the post-TX phase.

Interesting, NL. I remember some time back a few people posting about exercising before a blood draw to get their platelets up and be able to stay on tx. Another good reason to keep moving on tx.....Pam
