Customer Question

I am concerned at my medical issues the last 3 years and was wondering if I could be dealing with Lymphoma, Leukemia, and/or Intestinal Angioedema.
I recently had lab work done and here are my results:
WBC 11.6
MPV 11.1
Immature Granulocytes % 0.5
Absolute Immature Granulocyte 0.06
Glomerular Filtration Rate 85
Anion Gap 11.6
Albumin/Globin Ratio 0.9
All my CT Scans that I have show inflammation in my intestines and my lymph nodes in my mesenteric area are getting larger.
Chronic abdominal pain, daily fevers, extreme fatigue, abdominal distention.

Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
your blood work don't point to leukemia.
your WBC counts would have to be much much higher to have leukemia
WBC counts of 11.6 can be from bowel inflammation
what did the bowel surgery in 2013 show? did you have ulcerative colitis or crohn's disease?
CT scans would have seen enlarged lymph nodes suspicious for lymphoma.
you could have Mesenteric lymphadenitis which can cause severe abdominal pain.
or you could have excessive adhesions and scar tissue in your mesentary from your prior surgery. you might benefit from a lysis of adhesions surgery to cut out adhesions and scar tissue.
let me know if you have questions
