Does TTP-HUS come on suddenly with intense dry heaves and back pain - had plasma exchange for 7 days and kidney dialysis for four days every other day. I am home now but still no definitive answer to what caused it. Can the anti-biotic Rimfampin cause HUS? Is it possible I will never find out? This happened on 7/5/2012 and I am now recovering at home. Still have a little lower than normal red blood cells - is this normal

I was diagnosed with TTP a few months ago. Spent 2 weeks in the hospital getting plasmaphoresis treatments. I have been out since May 8th and haven't had any more problems so far. I'm VERY thankful for that. God Blees the doctors and hopsital staff that helped me through it. Also, bless all of you that are going through it now. My thought and prayers are with you for a speedy recovery.

I was diagnosed with TTP in March 2012. I went through packed cell transfusions followed by 16 days of platlets phersis. I am interested in some type of support group interaction with other patients who have survived and for me to find ansers to questions. This is the only place I have been able to find that might provide that place for me. However I live in South Carolina and I am unable to travel to group meetings at this time. Any information you may provide would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you!

I am newly diagnosed. I am wondering if it is possible. Could my TTP be related to Maternal Granmothers' blood disease? She had Hemachromatosis, My Maternal Uncle- Profuria (spelling?) one of my maternal cousins 25 yrs ago-ITP. Is it possible all these are related somehow? I did not have any diarrhea that MD. states precedes my condition. Brown

I'm from Melbourne Australia. I have hap TTP from when I was 24 years old. It's now nearly ten years and I still live in fear of it as I have relapsed every year and three years ago I relapsed twice within months apart. What scares me most is that when I present myself at the Emergeny Department the doctors look at me as if I don't know what I am talking about.
