Post Liver Transplant

Two years before had liver transplant.  Female 57 yrs  Wt. 45 kg. Sugar levels  100  to  210 post lunch
Diagnosis  ;  Primary Biliary Cirrhosis
Operation ; LDLT ; Rightlobe with subtotal MHV.
Prersent medication ;  Prograf  2.5 mg twise a day and prednisone 5 mg. ( Recentelly reintroduced after gap of 3 months)
My worries are for following reports;
Hg.   9.8
TLC  2.8
Platelet count  42000 to  48000

these counts are not too unusual post-transplantation at this time.  Coud be related to meds such as cellcept.  if you are otherwise feeling well wouldnt worry about it.  PTLD and GVHD can present with these counts.
