Enlarged spleen

Post by chris » 14 Jul 2010 10:20

I have an enlarged spleen (which may or may not be caused by or a symptom of my current diagnosis of MDS!). There is a possibility that I may have to have my spleen removed at some point. Does anybody have experience of having an enlarged spleen or a splenectomy? I would be interested to hear about it, if so.

I was taken into hospital as an emergency with an enlarged spleen. It would appear that my MDS had changed to CMML.

Have been treated with chemotherapy and are currently in remission awaiting a bone marrow (stem cell) transplant. I did not have to have my spleen removed.
