Hi Sajid,

Can you visit Karachi? I am sure laparoscopy would be available here in Aga Khan hospital,or may be even partial splenectomy,think about that.

Wishing you luck,

ZAINI.

Sajid,

I feel what you are going through. Regarding partial splenectomy, I don't think it is recommended for thals. I tried pursuing it for myself (in US and in India) but pretty much all the doctors were against partial splenectomy. They were firm and were very confident in thier opinion that partial splectomy will  do no good.

Best of luck to you and hope you make the best decision for yourself.

Sajid, my heart feels for you :hugfriend, i know how you feel especially when you are faced by doctors who are so indifferent and your restricted to limitations. Anyway, i hope you won't need to go through splenectomy and please make sure that there isn't other causes for this decrease in platlets other than the spleen. Who knows may be there are other things :dunno.
Please if i can do anything to help you let me know

Manal

Your each post gives me more points to discuss with my doctors. Let's see what happens.

Hi Sharleen,

Thanks for the well wishes, I really need them regarding this issue as nosebleeds are happening increasingly frequent to me these days; in-fact now I get them after a couple of days that I've stopped complaining :biggrin It seems like a part of routine now. I've had the PT and APTT test done and I was put on Vitamin-K for another 2 weeks. I'll go in for a TransX this Monday and get my PLT checked. :-\
