Large spleen and high WBC... What could be wrong?
He ordered an ultrasound and everything looked normal except for my spleen which was 13.8 cm (upper limits of normal).
My doctor thought that wasn't large enough to be causing the pain and referred me to another doctor to check on my ribs. I didn't think it was ribs (it doesn't feel like it), so I asked for blood work.
My white blood cell count came back at 11.3. The peripheral smear showed neutrophil.
I haven't been able to talk to my doctor yet, so I'm wondering, what could be wrong? Another doctor said he couldn't rule out leukemia, but he also didn't think that's it.
Does it sound like some other infection that needs attention? Should I be keeping my distance from people so I don't get anyone sick? I don't feel well, either, but I admit some of that could be anxiety over not knowing.
