“Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is an autoimmune disease that causes low platelet levels. Platelets are cell fragments in your blood that help it clot when you injure yourself. Having too few platelets can make you bruise or bleed more easily than usual. Sometimes ITP can come back after treatment. Here are answers to common questions about when ITP comes back.” ( https://www.healthline.com/health/itp/does-itp-come-back#how-to-know-if-itp-returns)Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
I have always had chronic ITP, but in 2015 is when my oncologist, prescribed me the injection, Rituximab Rituxan. This was only after I had tried, prednisone and gained a good twenty pounds.
The injection was okay, my body didn’t have a side effect to it, like prednisone. I took the injections, once a week for a month, and by two months I had a significant increase of platelets. Which was awesome. I couldn’t wait to start my way back to healing.
My last injection was in November 2015, and I’m happy to say I’m still in remission! I check my platelets twice a year, since my platelets are slowly dropping. It’s important to stay on top of your health, so you won’t be vulnerable to develop another autoimmune.
It’s been seven years, and I’m happy to say that my six months report looks good! God is good!
