Customer Question

my 22 year old son has glandular fever.. supposed to be travelling to indonesia for a holdiay tomorrow.. His GP says he is o.k. to fly BUT I have my concerns over - fluids, fever, his spleen being enlarged and liver... I am trying to talk him in to cancelling the trip. Any impact on his spleen or liver could be fatal.
JA: How long have you had a fever? Do you have any respiratory symptoms?
Customer: He has been diagnosed a week ago and has had fever on and off still - yesterday afternoon he had a fever AND the rash from the initial antibiotics has come out now. He had a scan on his liver and spleen yesterday and they were both enlarged by a third.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No - thats about it

I see, yes, he likely has a mononucleosis which can cause the enlargement.

Well it wouldn't be wise to travel.

Staying home and resting would be the right thing to do.

I agree with you.
