Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is possible that the platelets were in clumps which would reduce the numbers counted, this can sometimes be seen with a full blood count.
The value 68 is very low and would have likely been remarked upon if it was thought to be the true platelet count.
If you remain concerned you should consider, if possible, speaking to your doctor.

Hope this helps
