UPDATE : Spleen & leukemia fungemia or Bacteremia

UPDATE : Spleen & leukemia fungemia or Bacteremia

As some will know I asked if anyone knew what those chain light calls rods where in my blood as illustrated with picture.

Had few great replays SORRY could not respond to each and everyone BUT had quite a lot of suffering symptoms.

Anyway ONLY thing I know is the are rods spore chains LIVER & GI doc thinks it's fungus chains .. or bacteria spore chains OR could even be contaminated slide SO I will be having to watch that.

My other question is how many leukemia suffers have had issues with spleen re these chains rods spores

I was shocked to find out a health spleen weights 5 grams yet a diseased or hard working one can weighs kilos.

Anyway I was also surprised to find out that our spleens contain bacteria & yeast that can be ok in blood BUT is not yeast a fungus.

Guess I will know if I get colonised by those chains Bacteremia or what ever the are :o
