well I had it redone and they are saying they are low at 47, i am really confused, I lost this web site and have moved and now have way more health problems, such as two tumors on my salivary gland. so I have know idea what is going on with my body. I was told before that my platelets were low, but have never had any problems with any surgery I have ever had. one phlebotomist said that my blood seems to clump quickly and they either need to test it right away or use a special tube to draw the blood in.
