I am a 73 year old male and scheduled for a co-surgery. Da Vinci prostatectomy for PC and double hernia repair with patches. My platelet count is 92 x 10^3 per microliter. I have had this for over 17 years. I had a bone marrow biopsy before 16 years and also, had a recent one before 3 years. Both were negative. Everything else is in the normal range in my CBC. My PT 13.8 seconds, PT INR 1.1 and PTT 30 seconds. Is the platelet count acceptable for the procedure? Is there any risk of increasing the platelet count by infusion? Why should it be increased at all, when one of the dangers after the operation is clot formation? Could I sign a waiver, if the surgeon is reluctant to go ahead with the procedure with this platelet count? Thank you.
