Spleeney spleen spleen
Anyone else having troubles with their spleen and/or liver?
My spleen has more than doubled in size and is giving me grief. Last year it infarcted a few times (lost bits of it's blood supply and died, like in a heart attack) and my liver is also increased in size.
The spleen is pushing on my stomach so I am never hungry, and pushing on my lungs, so taking deep breaths is hard. Between the spleen and liver, I can't bend forward or get into some of my prettier dresses. Grr. I am in the world's biggest grump.
I haven't heard of anyone else having splenic problems with lupus.
Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by a-holes.
