Platlets over 1 million
Nov 28, 2006

My daughter had surgery and eight days later hemoraged. She had a second surgery to corret a bleeder (doctors words). She has been home a week and the same symptom are again giving her trouble. They are now checking for infection and doing tests to look for more internal bleeding. Her doctor was in this morning and said he was concerned because her platlet count was over a million.. could this high count be from a infection after surgery.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

Elevations in platlet counts (called thrombocytosis) can be caused by many situations, including infection, hemorrhage (bleeding), surgery, splenectomy, to name a few.

It seems like your daughter may have several potential causes. BY
