Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
have you had an immunologic workup done?
specifically what tests did you have for immunology?
Okay thank you.
1)yes you are correct. The bone marrow needs to be done ASAP. No one has this many infections without something else going on
2)if you haven't seen an actual immunologist I am skeptical the workup is complete
Full immunological workup is needed to exclude an immune deficiency.
let me know if you have other questions.

It could be from the injury. Yes
The immunologist is much better at looking for an immune deficiency
the hematologist is just looking at the bone marrow and blood
They would be looking for leukemia in the blood or a pre leukemic disorder
The bone marrow biopsy would be the only test
You would then be in need of seeing an immunologist to look for an immune deficiency
