This is Dr. Davidthat is good what you didhopefully her platelets will come back up with more time.they are not super low at this point, just slightly lowshe should also get an ultrasound of her spleen as wellsometimes an enlarged spleen can cause lower platelet levelslet me know if you have questions.
