        Hi everyone, I hope everyone is good and having a great day....hopefully not to stressed with life in general lol. Can anyone help with the fact that I've been told I have an enlarged spleen, could this be common with type 2, I'm wondering? I've had a chest x-ray, blood tests done, which were fine, but ultra sound picked up on a slightly enlarged spleen which will be investigated .....
