Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
Hi there, It is difficult to answer your question on basis of the information given here. It seems that she is having what we call as 'Leukocytosis' and 'Anemia' and had splenectomy done. What was the reason for her splenectomy 10 years ago would be a vital information to have. The reason for her being run down and tiredness could range from infection to malignancy but would need proper evaluation. As advised seeing a hematologist would be the right thing to do.Regards
