Blood work

Hello everyone,
I am suppose to have cervical surgery next week. I just got my pre-op lab work back and have some abnormal. I wanted to know if any of you that have completed tx have abnormal CBC and platelets? My WBCs, Hgb, Hct. and platelets have been low since starting treatment and completing tx. Thanks for any feedback. :)

I have been off 2 years this February. My surgery was cancelled today because they did the lab work again on Friday and they are lower than Monday. My Hgb, Hematocrit, Platelets, Absolute neutrophils & RBCs. they have continued to lower since August so I was referred to a hematologist today to see whats up?? I really appreciate your response and kindness.
Many Blessings,

How long ago did you finish TX? I know it takes several weeks to get all of the interferon out of the system. I can imagine that it would take longer for the bone marrow function to return and build up RBC and WBC. Hope you get feeling better soon.

I don't have an advice to offer about your post-tx situation, but I do want to wish you the best on your upcoming surgery.  Hopefully someone knowledgeable about post-tx labs will chime in.  I hope your procedure goes smoothly!  Good luck.
