white blood cell count
Hi!  I have an appendicitis was diagnosed a month ago.  The infection was so bad they had to put a drain in and I have been on IV antibiotics for a month.  Today I had the drain removed.  I am worried because now my white blood cell count which was elevated is now too low.  1st time all month it has come back low.  what does that mean?  Am I going to have to go back to the hosipital?  Is it because I have been on so much antibiotics?

How low is the WBC count? If only slightly under the normal range I wouldn't worry.
