I have a question about red and white blood counts. I was wondering how long it takes for the red and white blood count to get back to normal? I am near the end of a 24 week treatment. I have one more interferon shot on friday and then another week o Ribavirin after that then I stop treatment.My red count is pretty stable now at around 10.0. And my white count is low at 1.3.
Normal for my red is 17.0 and white not sure but I think around 4.3 or so. Thank You jim
