Can I fly on a Jet Aircraft with low blood platelets

My blood platelet count has been low since November 2007.  It has been as high as 52,000 and as low as 12,000.  I have had many tests and nothing shows up.  Tests include blood draws, bone marrow, cat scans, pet scans, ultra sound as well as 5 day treatment with IVIG (did not work).  I have been told that my spleen is enlarged, about 18cm. and it may be traping the platelets.  Is it dangerous to fly on a jet aircraft with low platelets?  If so how low is low and what can happen?  Does the length of the trip make a difference?
