enlarged spleen, low platelet count

Posted by Debbie on August 15, 1999 at 12:33:32
My husband found out a year and a half ago he has Hep C.  At that time his platelet count was 110,ooo.  He has had a biopsy and has fibrosis and an enlarged spleen.  In the last year his platlet count has dropped to 68,000.  All the doctors keep saying is don't worry.  I can't believe that this is ok to drop that much in that length of time.  We also figure that he's had this for about 25 years, was a heavy drinker, but has been sober for two years now.  What happens if platlets keep going down?  He's also sick alot and has diabetes.

Dear Debbie:
First I regret the delay in answering the MedHelp questions in the last month but the delay was due to factors outside my control.  I appreciate your questions and I appreciate your concern about your husband
