Low platelet counts (thrombocytopenia) - Marz416

Side Effects Associated with Colorectal (Colon) Cancer. Posted on October 14, 2011 View this journey (6 Experiences)

My platelets went from over 300 down to 78. A transfusion was considered and after 2 weeks went up from 78 to 105. Still low but no transfusion. Positive mental attitude. I didnt want the transfusion and ate Kale, garlic thinking this would help. I think it did but after speaking to a nutritionist was told that the Kale causes diarrhea so I was hurting myself thinking I was helping myself. Total learning experience.
