My sister has been told by her doctor to get the spleen removed.
For the last 6 years she has had health problems related to platelet loss.
Many years ago had had a blood transfusion that did not solve the problem. Now she has taken a stand and refuses this kind of blood treatment. At the moment her platelets count is 30000 (In Taiwan). She bruises very easily. and is very tired all the time. Bone marrow, red cells and white cells are normal. The doctor thinks she may have Immune or idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura.
Do you know any research that have been done on it?
thank you for your help
