I am really scared. I have posted about this earlier this week but after a 3 day stay in a hospital answered most but not all of my questions. I am a fairly active 32/w/f 5ft 3in 110 lbs. and a smoker. There is a family history of cancer; my father died of lung cancer at age 53; paternal grandmother died of kidney cancer; paternal grandfather a prostate and lung cancer surviver, maternal grandmother died of colon cancer; my mom's twin brother died of lung cancer at age 40. I AM IN THE PROCESS OF QUITTING SMOKING!
A recent CBC with Manual Diff shows the following.....
CBC - RBC - Low /// MCH - High /// % Neutrophiles - High /// % Lymphs - Low /// Absolute Neutro - High /// ABS Basos - None 0.0
MDIFF - Bands - High at 12 (normal range 0-3)** was 7 on 11/8/04 while I was in ER for vertigo at 7 months pregnant** /// Lymphs - Low
Is this anything to be concerned about?? Why are the "Bands" always so high??? Not a single ER doc or my docs had mentioned this to me. I feel they are overlooking my CBC w/ Manual Diff. They do I did have a swollen lymph node biopsyed with normal results over 10 years ago and diagnosed with EBV around that same time. I was recently diagnosed with Rheumatiod Arthitis because my RA factor was slightly elevated. I suffer from severe drenching night sweats that both my Internal Med Dr and Rheumatologist can't explain. WTF???
Should I get a third or fourth opinion??? What does all this mean??? HELP!!
