Hi there ~

I understand your concerns for your husband. However you do not give much to go on with the medical history for your husband. Having high blood pressure and COPD are not uncommon and I am hoping that husband is getting good care for it. Low platelet counts can be concerning and you should have your husband tested for and blood disorders. I believe that getting another prostate count in about a month will make things more clear. I would also advise you to consult your doctor to find out if your husband needs a pelvic ultrasound to make sure that he does not have any benign prostatic hypertrophy. I assure you that there are effective treatments even if something is detected. I hope everything is okay however and this relieves your anxiety.

Take care and have a lovely day!
