elevated white blood count

I had surgery today and had 3 cysts removed. One from my leg one from my back and one from my ear. This all being said my doctor informed me I have an elevated white count that they will have to check again in a week. So I was told it was 13;400. They expect it to be high because of HS.

This all being said has anyone ever been told they have an elevated white count all the time due to HS? If you have how high is your count?



Yes Everytime they test my blood its always high they say its due to HS Mines are useally 15,000 Two 18,000 I Also have A High Inflamation Because Of HS Which causes My bonemarrel too stop working because the inflamation seems too cover it so my red blood seals are low and my white sales are high big problem but god bless you and you might wanna mention to your doctor if you have any inflmation that may be causeing it also

Mine are really high too. Usually like 18,000 bc I am usually always fighting infections. I hope they have some valuable info for you.

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    Support from family

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
