    Could be result of cancer treatment - spleen takes over a little for the bone marrow that was damaged. The spleen enlarges for that.

    Could be hepatitis. Doesn't have to be cirrhosis, but that is also another possibility.

    Could be a secondary leukemia, which can manifest in all sorts of configurations on the WBC and symptoms.

    If you have chronic hepatitis C - you are usually supposed to take medicine to at least slow the virus down.

    You haven't really asked a question.

    If your hep C has caused cirrhosis or liver disease then that can cause an enlarged spleen and therefore a low platelet count.

    You have some serious medical issues that need to be addressed with your doctor.

    Good luck!
