Chemo tablet or splenomegaly to reduce spleen enlargement?
Good question, @stimme. Allow me to tag fellow members who have experience with an enlarged spleen like @grecarmar @suezq @shaker1956 @scsimpson @rllarocca @dustedeagle @bordercolliecra and @stevehurlburt.
While we wait for others to weigh in with their experiences, you might be interested in this related discussion:

It's good to hear that your blood counts and platelets have stabilized. Which chemo is being recommended?

Sorry but I can't help you with the myelofibrosis because I have splenic marginal zone lymphoma. I am now in remission. I had my spleen removed in July of 2017. I have had no problems so far. I have not changed how I live. I do have a problem with fatigue but I also have several auto immune diseases so that doesn't help. I want to wish you good luck with this problem. I you have any other questions there are always people here that can help.
