Hi! I am wondering about platelet counts. My son had motorcycle crash. On day one platelet was 169, on day 3 platelet was 120. No platelet count since.
Why is docs not worried about this?
Thank-you, diana

Injury and massive bleeding (surgery-I don't know if your son had it) are some of the reasons to have higher level of platelets in blood. This increase is of transitory character which means that once condition is getting better they'll drop.
How is he know? Does he have new blood test results?
I'll be glad if you write me back!
