Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
The platelet count is slightly raised
This is most likely raised due to the fact that you are postpartum
During delivery a lady loses blood that can cause one to have raised platelets.
This is what we call as reactive increase in the platelets or reactive thrombocytosis.
so bot***** *****ne is that there is nothing to worry about and relaxd
So even though I'm ten weeks out, this can still be normal? And the chances of this causing a blood clot are not concerning?
This should NOT cause a blood clot
Even at ten weeks out this can be normal because its raised when healing is going on.
So there must be some healing process still going on at ten weeks postpartum.
So its normal
One last question...I was told I was anemic a few days postpartum. Based on theblood results, does this still seem to be going on? If so, does it usually just resolve itself?
If you were anemic that makes sense because the anemia was most likely due to bleeding and bleeding causes raised platelet count
so I would not worry
It would resolve itself
just relax and take a good iron rich diet
