Is this Thalassemia?

I am 64 years old male and I have fatigue, bleed easily on bruising. I have had repeated respiratory infections since the past 1 year. Unusual weight loss, along with a loss of appetite and night sweats (even in cold temperature). I also pain or fullness below the ribs on the left side. My children are really concerned about my pale skin.

My Doctor has revealed a massive spleen with hepatomegaly. He gave me a diagnosis but i need a second opinion asap.

Here are the blood smear results

Blood smear shows:
•Hb   11.1 g/dl    (normal 11.7 -15.7)                    
•Platelets   246 x10E+9/L    (normal 150 -450)    
•WBC   84.2 x10E+9/L    (normal 4.5 -11.0)        
•Blasts   (1%) 0.84    (normal < 0.02)                  
•Promyelocyte    (1%) 0.84                                
•Myelocytes   (5%) 4.21                                    
•Metamyelocytes   (9%) 7.58                              
•Bands   (23%) 19.37    (normal 0.1 -0.8)            
•Polys   (43%) 36.22   (normal 2.0 - 6.8)
•Basophils    (2%) 1.68     (normal < 0.2)


Any help would be highly appreciated. Thank you!!!
