Typically one would see a decrease or low white blood cell counts during treatment. Have any of you experienced high counts? Like 18.7? My mom had been treated for c-diff in the last 6 weeks in between her surgeries and recurrence of her OVCA. So, we think it may be the c-diff again, and are awaiting her stool sample results. But, wanted to check if any of you experienced that without c-diff.
Yes that can happen...might be a minor infection, etc....but it does happen. I guess the doctor could try and order some blood tests to determine the type of infection, if any, but that may be inconclusive depending.
