Have ET: What if spleen is enlarged?
I have ET, 69 years old, experiencing fatigue and headaches. First hematologist recommended Hydroxyurea for counts hovering around 500. Second MPN specialist prescribed 2 low-dose aspirin only for the time being. Just had an ultrasound for possible enlarged spleen. My question is: what if spleen is enlarged? What would the ramifications be? Would I have to go on the HU? Short term? Forever? For some reason, I didn’t think to ask the hematologist this. Thanks to anyone who may have some insight on this.
