Spleen enlarged and pain
I have been getting recurring cellulitis over the last 5 years. No idea why. I have varicose veins in my feet and that's all I can say. Drs say there's no link.

But they say my lymphocytes are low and always been low. Round 1.3. They go down to .4 when I suffer this cellulitis, it isn't typical cellulitis. It is probably quite mild iin opinion but my groin lymph nodes flare up and get fever and a hot rash that spreads and migrates my thighs and buttock. Always similar place. Have been hospitalised for it though.


The main worry for me is the SPLEEN. ITS ENLARGED AND KEEPS GETTING MORE SO, Was 13cm bout and year ago. Then dec 16.2 cm then jan 2014 15.8cm. Now it MUST be bigger as now have 2 cellulitis episodes in as many weeks and then the spleen is now hurting. Never hurt before so I assume it must be even bigger. The pain now has subsided now to an ache but this is really scarying me.

What's causing the problem? Is my spleen the thing causing all this or these infections making the spleen swell and affect my lymphocytes? Feel like I'm stuck to forever ill.

I have periods of being 'well' but just waiting to be sick again. I CANNOT LOSE MY SPLEEN, If I get these recurring infections then I need my spleen very much so. I am worried it will all be too much and kill me, I have small children and scared to leave them motherless,

I have a ct scan Thursday and they've mentioned a bone marrow biopsy. I have out ruled the bad things but my body just seem like mine anymore. Last bloods were regarded as normal apart from lympocytes as previously mentioned. I really need help and advice. Can my spleen be shrunk?
