Re : for anyone with low platelets

I had platelet count of about 20,000 - I had 2 transfusions- one a day after emergency c-section another 2 days after surgery. I was covered in bruises all over my body and only after I got the 2nd transfusion did I actually start to feel better.

<t>In April 2008 I suffered from HELLP syndrome. My daughter was born at 34 weeks. I was diagnosed with a circumvalle placenta earlier in pregnancy but had no complications because of that and had a relatively normal pregnancy.
