    At what platelet level did you or your loved one start getting transfusions?

    Kathleen Till

    Mine were as low as 13,000 but they do not usually give until under 10,000.
    I am waiting for BMT and on chemo. The other day my platelets went to 99,000.

    Sorry cannot help you more.

    Thank you, Kathy, for your response. My husband’s platelet level is 17,000. I hope your BMT is successful! My husband is not a candidate for that.
