White blood cell

I have a perferated appendix and have been on antibiotics for 4 weeks.  My initial blood test showed my white blood cell count to be high.  Now my white blood cell count is too low.  What will happen

Hello,
Though I would not be able to diagnose your problem without a clinical examination I would like to share that there are many conditions which can cause increase in WBC counts like bacterial infection, laekaemia, stress, immune system disorder etc.Viral infections, infectious diseases and certain antibiotics can lead to low WBC counts. You may discuss with your doctor and correlate the test results clinically. You may need a repeat testing after 1-2 weeks. If there is no rise additional tests for detecting the cause of leucopenia may be needed. I hope it helps.
Best of luck and kind regards!
