I had my follow up with my Hemotologist the other day. Turns out I've tested positive for Lupus Anticoagulant and feeling pretty crappy about it. Does anyone here have both ITP and LA? This is so new to me that I don't even know if I'm using it in the right context. Wednesday I'll be receiving my first treatment of Rituxan and I'm actually concerned about my platelets going up now.
My 12 year old just had a high result for Cardiolipin IGM. She has had ITP since April and is not responding to treatments. Her count was 0 for five weeks and is now 1 after IVIG to replace her antibodies after Rituxun. If she has APS, how does that affect her ITP treatment?? Can she still try Whinro or NPlate?
She has no symptoms just the ITP. Her platelet count keeps going to and staying at 0. She received Winrho today. Her count was 0 this morning and was 7 this afternoon. I'm hoping the response last ps longer than a week. She feels terrible from it though.
