My doctor told me my platelet count, which is 44,000, does not make me a
candidate for PEG+Rib treatment. He says my platelet count needs to be
greater than 60,000. Is there a way to increase the platelet count?
Also, he took a nuclear liver scan and says he 'thinks' I may have early
stage cirrhosis. This isn't very reassuring. I had a biopsy in 1995 and
told there was some necrosis.
