Hi and sorry you have this problem. The question is what is causing you to get low platelets? You can bleed if you platelets get too low. They can also give you a transfusion of platelets if you have to. I would go and see the hematologist to try the reason for the low platelets. You need to find the reason then they can give you the right treatment. Yes you should go!
