I have hcv for 24 yrs. I have been ultrasound on liver come back normal. Found out I have enlarged spleen. Blood plaits were 44 thousand. Spleen is as big as liver whats wrong.
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Your spleen is holding on to your platelets and your spleen has increased in size as a result. although the number is low, it is not dangerously so. However, you should consult with a liver specialist as to the best course of action.
