Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. His platelet count is low for surgery and there is chance of bleeding at time of surgery. However you should search for cause of low platelet count. Viral infection is the most common cause however he may have other cause. You should consult a physician and take treatment accordingly. Then you should go for surgery.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
