Abnormal blood tests: The splenic enlargement, low plateletes combined with fatique and night sweats are significant, and even with a negative PET scan and bone marrow bx may indicate serious illness. A hematologist in a university medical center should be consulted, and perhaps an infectious disease specialist as well as soon as possible.
