My platelets were low end of normal 26 weeks eot---199. I was told that it takes a while for that to return to normal, and it is not abnormal for it to be low still.
Hey there! Congratulations on your SVR! That is great news! Sandi is right, it takes a while for the platelets to come back up. I finished tx in 2012 and up until August mine were close to your number. This past August they were 185 and I was so happy. I felt as if I was improving my health. Good luck to you! Dee
Thanks for chiming in, I figure it's probably something like that where your system takes awhile to get where it's ultimately going to be.
My platelets have been around 80 to 90 range for a while now due to having cirrhosis for 8 years and the associated spleen enlargement due to portal hypertension which causes platelets to be sequestered boy the spleen. I made SVR 24 in October and am hoping maybe with time my platelet levels might improve.
I had my results come back as clumped a couple of times. I did not have any result just clumped. The lab said to let them know I have had problems with clumping previously I guess there is something they can do to help you get a result and prevent clumping.
I read somewhere that it is sometimes a problem with people who have low platelet counts that the clumping problem occurs.
Happy New Year all
