Are NSAIDS still contraindicated after 10 hrs remission and platelets at 200+?

I was diagnosed in 2012, was on watch for several years. In 2016 platelets at 4. Steroids ineffective. Started Nplate and simultaneously treated an H Pylori infection so not sure which treatment worked but I went into remission.  Consulted with Dr David Kuter who suggested taper Nplate after 6 months. Have been in remission ever since with platelets in 200 range. Are NSAIDS contraindicated for life? I’m having surgery and protocol is to take NSAIDS for pain unless contraindicated.

I asked my haematologist this just today. He considered it fine for me to take them, and I'm currently at 120

Thank you so much for answering my question. I also finally heard from my Dr. I had asked because I am having major surgery and surgeon wants me to takes NSAIDS postop for pain. I was told OK to take them for short term such as post surgery or occasional such as for headache. Shout out toPDSA for making this forum available!

I'm really not in a remission [count not normal, but count decent] - I had to take baby aspirin for 2 weeks after each knee surgery & my count went up.  Now taking a daily baby aspirin and my count has gone up.  Crazy!
