I had a Pulmonary Embolism about six weeks ago, They started me on warfarin which i have to take for six months I'm a young male 29 years of age, not over weight haven't been on any long trips, and have no known medical problems before i had my PE. When testing my blood they notice my white blood cell count is high. The last blood test they did i don't know what it was for, the sample of blood they took had a yellow cap do any one know what that was for? Also do anyone have any ideas why my white blood cell count could be high?
They also notice by stomach was large i suffer from heart burn allot
