Cousin with TTP
Posted on: 12/29/2002
my cousin has TTP a disease from pregnancy. she has been in the hospital ever since she delivered (4 months). they had to take her spleen out and she still dont seem as if shes getting better. do you think theirs something underlying the problem? and do you think that she will even make it?
I appreciate that you are concerned about your cousin. I encourage you to talk with her and her close family to convey your questions and to get answers from those who are in close contact with her physicians. Those doctors can better answer your questions.
