Dear Dr George, I am a 39 yr old male in remission now since 2005. I live in New York and was treated by Dr Seth at Hutington Hospital back in 2005. My sister has ITP and I had my bought with TTP as I stated above. I am constantly worried by the lingering affects of this affliction. FM is the most common residual as is the memory and sight loss issues. I have yet to see anything about those of us dealing with the lingering affects of TTP. Meritts to you and your staff and all you've done for this affliction. I wondering if you actually get this, if you ask the treating hospital for my info and could you look at my treatments of pheresys. I have notice that the problems that I am having might be from the speed at which my 1 1/2 treatment were done. Daily for 3 months straight. Followed up by 8 rounds of Rituxamab. Thank you for any consideration in my case. Sincerely, George T TTP stands for "T.he T. oughest P. eople"

Thanks so much for the anecdotal accounts of people with ITP. Our son was just given IViG as treatment for ITP, so it was good to see some different perspectives. Thanks again!

The more information the better regarding platelets, back in 2003 I was beginning to feel different worried about my health. I usually get a physical yearly that year in 2004 docotors discovered I had high platelets. I remember the doctor I went to told me it was cancer I flipped out. He was not very caring. I went to another doctor and she explained it in a better manner and gave me a bonemarrow test. I do not have cancer but the high platelets are w/me for the rest of my life. I treat it daily and try to do the best I can to stay well. The more information about this the better. There are some questions I need answered by my doctors but its good to have this here to share with others.
