I'm not a doctor but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express.  As for your question, all I can say is that Sam is still alive.

Sorry about the win today, maybe we'll lose next time.

25 years as an ER RN. If the spleen were to rupture we would know it immediately. His spleen is fine. Once the inflammation is gone from the effects the viral load, he is out of danger.

I'll take a 25-year ER RN any day of week and twice on Sunday over a Doctor. 

 

Thanks!

The inflammation from the mono should be gone. His chance of rupturing his spleen out there is the same as it was before the illness and the same as anyone else in a contact sport, which is very low.  It is a rare injury.

Physician here. He would know right away. Risk gets lower every week be gets further away from the original infection date. They probably will check with ultrasound again to ensure the swelling is continuing to stay down. Stamina could be a bit of an issue for this whole season but again not to the point where we should be seeing major problems. Obviously each case is different so makes it hard to predict with 100% certainty.

Still Sam stayed in can we assume his spleen was fine?  Does it get checked after every game to make sure it didn’t rupture?

We are talking about spleen, not dead cells. You don’t need a doc to tell you it’s ruptured. Sam himself can tell you that. That’s assuming he doesn’t pass out from pain.
