Brief Answer: Please upload your lab reports to asisst further.. Detailed Answer: Hi, Usually, the levels of 405 and up to 410 of platelets are considered within normal (acceptable) levels. However, I kindly ask to have your lab reports in order to assist you further! You are saying to face pulmonary embolism after surgery. Can you please specify the time of being diagnosed with breast cancer, when did you have the surgery? Taking into account your medical history and overall general health, to my judgement, the slightly elevated platelets levels are not to be worried about. However, as you are also having a history of hypertension and pulmonary embolism, I advised to take baby aspirin on daily basis. Looking forward to have your lab results in! Thank you! Dr.Albana
