I was at the hospital at 5 am this morning. Unfortunately even with the antibiotics my white cell count only went down 3 points. It is still too high to risk surgery. The chance of possible infection would be too great. So after laying there for 3 hours with an i.v. in my arm I got to come home with instructions.
Now instead of getting the impacted wisdom tooth removed after my shoulder surgery, it will have to be done first. After that another blood count will be done and if the white cell count is still too high after that my surgeon is sending me to an infection specialist. :(
Guess it is a good thing my shoulder got so bad I wanted to get it fixed or I would not have known about any of this until the infection had possibly spread to my bloodstream.
Just trying to look on the bright side.
