Hi @Marilyn I wish you well and I hope you are doing ok and tha your blood plateletes are under control.

Thank you so much for writing and for your comforting and kind words. I guess i panicked as I am new to this and it is all unknown. I blame it on reading too much Google that really made me anxious.

I am still waiting but I feel calmer today and just waiting the results.

I wish you well.

So glad that @Marilyn’s message offered you some comfort @jess . It’s totally understandable that you panicked and that you’re feeling so anxious. The waiting for results and uncertainty of what might be going on sounds really hard. Hope you’re feeling okay today.

Hi @jess It is natural to be worried. All you can do is what helps me and write down your fears, thoughts, questions, symptoms and practicalities so you are prepared for the call and able to write down the replies. Spoil yourself tonight. We are all here for you and as @Alice_BloodCancerUK says the support line is also there for you so let us know how you get on.

Hi guys,

The doctor called me today and she said that the X ray and ultrasound results were fine and they didnt found anything serious, which is a reallt good news. However, she didnt say that they had to run anymore tests to investigate why my blood plateletes have elevated .She said they had done all they can and i did not have to do anything further, which i found rather strange as in the first call she sounded worried but now she said all is ok.

Hi @jess, well good news that the x ray and ultrasound, but the call has left you confused. Perhaps reading responses above and the doctor does not seem concerned that is just as your platelets are. Please keep posting how you are and spoil yourself.

Hi @jess I’m so pleased to hear this. Are you feeling better and more reassured?
Do get in touch with your doctor if you feel you have questions that haven’t been answered for you, such as why they were initially worried but now they aren’t, as you’re well within your rights to feel informed around this. Did they speak to you about the sorts of things they were looking to rule out or confirm? Perhaps knowing more about this might help you to feel more reassured. Thanks so much for the update!

Hi Erica yes i am happy for the results. The call left me a bit confused as i thought they would get to the bottom of it. But she said we have done all we could, so i think i woll wait and watch for now. I have been booked for other blood tests by the end of next month so I will just try to not think for now. thanks so much for your support

Hi Alice

She said that she has gone above and beyond and there is no need to run more tests. She said we have ruled out the existence of the ovaries or lung cancer now and that they dont need to check anything else.

I will leave it for now but i will chase up again as i think i have to right to know the reason of the blood plateletes being elevated whatever that might so i know where i stand. But she was firm the she had done more than she had to…
