Good night doctor. Sorry to interrupt. I hanum age 21 years I have thalassemia dri unur 12th, Here I want to ask, my friend in arms a person with leukocytes also high and d suggest to check the spinal cord, are there any side effects after the check ?? Thank you
Hello Nume, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Thalassemia is a blood disorder that occurs due to genetic disorders of the sufferer, which causes a synthesis of synthesis (reduced or absent) from the normal globin chain. Thalassemia sufferers will experience anemia, so the symptoms that will arise are also similar to anemia such as weakness, and pale.
Responding to the questions you give, the possibility that occurs in a very high increase in leukocytes is an infection, leukemia, multiple myeloma, etc. Therefore doctors recommend to do BMP / bone marrow puncture to determine for certain abnormalities that occur.
In general, BMP itself is a safe procedure for patients, but every action still has risks, but with experts, and the right methods will minimize the possibility of these risks. Some of the risks that can occur are infection, bleeding, allergic reactions to anesthesia, pain at the BMP location.
After the procedure, the patient will feel pain in the puncture site for several days, but this can be reduced by using pain relievers. In addition, the treatment of injection scar in the spine must also be treated properly and correctly to prevent infection. Furthermore the results will come out for a few days / weeks thereafter and will be discussed with the doctor in the next meeting.
That's all the answers I can give.
Thank you :)
