A phone call

Just had a phone call from my GP surgery.

It would seem that my white blood cell count is high according to the blood test I had yesterday.

My white blood cell count is 26 when is should be below 8.

I had a reason for this and that is I am taking Filgrastim which is a white blood cell booster so we would expect it to be high, but should it be as high as 26?

The doctor warned me that the high white blood cell count could also be due to an infection and that I should keep an eye open for flu like symptoms.

To be safe I booked an appointment to go and see the doctor, I need to review my prescriptions anyway.

So I have an appointment booked for Thursday at 1240.
