My platelets are down to 41 due to cirrhosis of the liver. Now I need a tooth out and its going to be a huge problem. The dentist wouldnt do it because I of the bleeding - it takes a long time for my blood to clot.Im seeing my doctor tomorrow. But I just want to know if anyone has been in this position and what is the procedure.

get a referal to the hospital dentist they can put a plan into place maybe going on a high dose of prednisone for a few days before and get a blood test done before the extraction. i know that you saids your platlets are 41 but you should be fine. also if you have low platlets never take asprine. take panadol.
