I am being treated for Thrombocythemia. Medication being taken is Hydrea. Recently I have developed an enlarged spleen (very painful). I have had CT scans which appear clear.
My question to my specialist was is it possible that the spleen may have been diseased prior to being diagnosed with Thrombocythemia (only in the last year) and that the spleen is the root of the problem, or is the Thrombocythemia and or medication (hydrea) causing the enlarged spleen.
The response was that this could not be the case. I am not convinced.
Please can you help.
