I have TTP (very similar to ITP, only difference is it's not idiopathic) and I've been worried about relapsing now that I'm pregnant. I'm going to request monthly blood counts at my appointment so hopefully if it comes back we can catch it before it gets too bad.
@monesue: how do they treat your ITP during pregnancy? Do you have plasmapheresis treatments? Or just steroids and ivig? And are the symptoms the same when it starts to come around during your pregnancy? Light headed, bruising, easy bleeding etc? Thanks for the links (even though they weren't meant for me
) I'll definitely check them out.
All my hemo will tell me is I probably won't relapse so I shouldn't worry about it. He insists that it can be brought on by stress so I need to stop stressing over it. I wish he wasn't such a good hemo, he's kind of a jerk..
