Ive been very ill with copd; respiratory failure; paralyzed right diaphragm upward;severe sleep apnea; had mersa in my lungs also while I was inpatient 1 1/2 yrs. ago. Ive been doing better. New dr. so I think she's overly concerned about one blood test. Should I be worried & really check this out.?
I know little to nothing about Leukocytosis. However, I did a little research and found it is most likely associated with an infection of some sort, viral or bacterial. What did your doctor tell you? How is she treating it?
Hi, if i'm correct, the maximum wbc for an adult should be 10.4, so in that case your result is pretty high. What has your doctor said to do about this?
