| | New Here! Please Help! Scared
I am new here and would like to ask a few questions? I am 24 years old, Mother of a beautiful 2 year old daughter and I have a step son and daughter who are 9 and 6.These kids and my husband are my world. In September I got really sick with a sinus infection(had these before) and a ear infection. Then I had some kind of stomach flu where I couldn't hold anything down and had diarrhea for about a week. My white count went up to 18 but has since gone back to normal and all my other blood was perfect including vitamins and liver enzymes, inflammation and kidney function. However one of the ER doctors sent for a bunch of tests, Chest x-ray abdominal ultrasound and lots of blood work for HEP A,B, and C and AIDS. All was negative except I had a slightly enlarged spleen. I went for another ultrasound of my pelvis which was normal and then a follow up of my abdomen which showed my spleen had went from 14.5 cm to 15.1 cm. I have since been put on anxiety meds because I was having bad anxiety freaking out a lot and running to the ER every other day. My doctor has referred me to see a hematologists because of my spleen and I am really scared. What should I expect? Did anyone else have an experience like this? Also because of the anxiety I have all kinds of symptoms, racing heart on which I have had 3 EKGs show normal, shortness of breath but when I take an ativan that helps. I work as a CCA and am scared to lift on the residents because I am scared my spleen may rupture. Any suggestions or personal stories would help.
