I recently had bloodwork done showing normal liver enzymes with the exception of an elevated GGT. Symptomatically, my greatest complaint was fatigue. my mono spot came back neg but CMV was pos. It's been about 3 weeks now, and my fatigue is resolving but I now have had a week of pain on my left side esecially with inhalation. A urine dip showed some Leukocytes and antibiotics were started, but they don't seem to be resolving the discomfort on my side. Should I be concerned? With a hx of an elevated GGT and CMV, could there be some splenic involvement?
