I had a splenectomy at about 18 months old after being involved in a car accident. 23 years on I take my penicillin when myself or people around me are ill. I am always so cautious when I'm ill and visit the doctor because for every illness going, websites such as the NHS one always say if you have no spleen see your doctor! However, I often feel like it makes no difference when I go for an appointment with doctors often refusing to give me antibiotics for a throat infection (today) or an ear infection (a couple of months ago). I know they say it's viral, but I was under the impression that we should be given antibiotics as a precaution! What are everyone else's experiences of this?
