Curious if anyone is taking a daily baby aspirin and if so how is your platelet count doing?
I started last week and yesterday my count was 179k !!!    That was a surprise as it has more than doubled and I don't like that because of those big sticky platelets.   mrsb I really wish I could share some with you!!!

Didn't the same thing happen when you were on the daily baby aspirin after your knee surgeries, Mel?
I told mrsb the same thing about giving her some of my platelets if I could!

That did happen during the 2 weeks I was taking after knee replacement - then when stopped went back down.
But I won't be stopping the baby aspirin now - will be interesting to see how long this lasts.
