Hello everyone! This is a complicated question but I'll try to be brief. Dx with primary breast lymphoma and hepatitis c in Feb 09. Put on Epivir 100 mg. Did 2 rounds of Rituxan and Zevalin. Platelets have been steadily dropping around 5500 daily. Had uterine biopsy due to excessive menstrual bleeding and platelet drop. Stopped bleeding for a couple of days after that but then started bleeding again today. Platelets are now at 8000. Doctor says only platelet transfusion will help. (Zevalin is stopping megakaryocyte production therefore no platelets.) Doc also says proteins will not help situation so he will not try Neumega, Neupogen, cryoprecipite etc.....! I'm a Jehovah Witness and will not receive platelet transfusion. With platelets dropping @ 5500 daily I feel I'm running out of time for rx before I end up with cerebral or abdominal bleed! I'll have zero (0) platelets in 2 days! Suggestions anyone???? Please help!!!!!!
