Hi! Im 21 years old and was diagnosed with aplastic anemia i month ago. Ive already undergone ATG and am curently on cyclosporine and prednisone. I only had a reaction the first day of ATG and other than that its been smooth sailing. I know its only been 2 weeks since ive had the ATG, but im getting anxious because I still need platlet transfusions every 7 days. My hmglb is holding at 10.8. My wbc shot up to 4.5, and my neutrophils went up to 1.2 (they were .4 when i was released a week ago.). The docs said they dont know what lines seem to go up first and what it means. What have been other people’s responses to ATG? Have your platelets been the last to rise? I know it takes months someitmes, but I found an article that stated that those who respond within 3 months have the best longterm remission.
