about a year or two back(when i was 16) i was getting some sharp pains in my spleen and it was tender to the touch, i know that this is what it was because i went to the doctor and had an ultrasound, he gave my medication and told me to not do anything that could cause a rupture, well i did as he said but still two years later i still get sharp pains and it's still tender to the touch. what can i do? what is wrong?
