Got my bloodwork back. Low platelet count, which, coupled with my symptoms, indicates something wigged out in the spleen. I checked out the symptoms for mono, and a lot of them match up, except I don’t have a sore throat, swollen lymph glands or lethargy, and the headaches and fever are long gone. Anyway, I go in for a CT scan on my spleen tomorrow and more bloodwork Friday. I’ve got a $500 deductible, so this is going to hurt.

  1. can they do a blood test for mono before they do a catscan? it could possibly save you a few hundred dollars if it is, in fact, mono.

    i’m sending send you warm, fuzzy healthy vibes…sometimes they work. =)

  2. also adam, if you want to, send me your symptoms and i’ll forward them to my brother – he’s a doc who loves doing research based on symptoms, and he’ll do it for free.
