Question: question regading cbc results


 buckeyefan1970 - Thu Sep 01, 2005 5:40 pm

Hello
In July I had a CBC drawn which showed a WBC count of 13.7. I was having problems with a hairline fracture in the foot and a sinus infection. I was put on Augmentin for 10 days and had a repeat CBC done a couple of weeks after I finished the coarse. My CBC is still elevated at 12.6 but the diff is all normal. A repeat UA show 2+ leuk. est. and a WBC count of 15 negative for bacteria and the C&S was negative. Are there specific questions I should ask the ARNP? I'm just worried. Upon reading I don't have any s&s of leukemia. I'm just not sure where to go. I imagine she will want to send me to a hematologist and a urologist. Thanks for any information.

"A repeat UA show 2+ leuk. est. and a WBC count of 15 negative for bacteria and the C&S was negative."

This statement inplies a previous urine analysis was done. What were the results, and was the test done on the same day that WBC showed a count of 13.7?
