|Hepatitis C & Enlarged Spleen left untreated
Jul 13, 2004
What happens with a person who has an Enlarged Spleen and it is not removed or the under laying cause most likely Hepatitis C with Bridging Fibrosis is not treated? I get extreme pain in the upper left & right quad's. Have no insurance and just got turned down by Medicaid.

I share your concern for liver disease, expecially if your liver shows bridging fibrosis and you have an enlarged spleen. I would consider speaking to a social worker to see if they can assist you in determining how you might obtain financial assistance for medical care. Some hospitals also let patients apply for "free care".
