in a general lab test -- I think it's Chemistry, are there any numbers indicating anything to do w/ the liver and/or spleen?
I did not think to ask my new Dr about this, as the pain I'd been having was so slight and I hadnt done any recent research on Babs or Augmentin.
And I know these things need to be checked while on heavy abx. I have pretty light, only recurring, pain in where I believe my spleen to be -- not sure -- just from looking it up. Been going on for over a year, but it is not severe and when it's not hurting, I forget about it.
had mono as a teenager and labs (and Dr) say I have chronic mono, which can compromise the spleen. I've noted now that Babs can too, and that Augmentin can be bad for those w/ no spleen or spleen problems. And I know the spleen and liver work closely together.
Have become a worry wart, just like most of us.... So I'm going thru old labs to see if I can find out if my liver was OK. With all this crap going on, I worry about Hep C (which some of you have) and stuff like that.
