Today Was The Day.....

Postby ETGuy71 » Mon Mar 04, 2019 11:14 am

....the doctor canceled because my white count was elevated!
I got the IV, partial antibiotic infused....met anesthesiologist, OR nurse was there to take me back.....doc arrives he said the last thing he wanted to do with WBC’s elevated was take a chance on infection with implant.
I agreed....but I was all mentally ready. It will be a minimum of two weeks maybe a month! Now we have to figure out why WBC’s are elevated....I feel great!
Good grief I just want this behind me!

Just wondering, was the blood test done the day of surgery?
If not, why wasn't it caught sooner?
I was joking on my day and said I change my mind.
A nurse said you can if you want.
I mostly said it to my wife.

Actually it was elevated a week ago, they thought because I had been on prednisone for bronchitis. But I had finished the prednisone the week before the preop labs were drawn last Monday.
So, who knows! Got to figure it out now!
