Hi! Good day! Anyone here who got diagnosed with ITP and still able to get pregnant? Did you have to remove the spleen before pregnancy? Doctor said removing the spleen could help in the course of pregnancy but not required to be removed. Thank you! God bless!
I'm just curious - what did the doctor (PCP, hematologist or OB/GYN or a high risk OB/GYN?) tell you was the reasoning behind why a spleen removal "could" help during pregnancy? I'd want statistics, reasons, facts as to the why "could"
(And chances are this post may not be seen by many - if you don't get answers why not post it up in the adult section where more will see it? Good luck to you!!)
