Neutrophils and how to count them
There seem to be different ways of counting and recording these. My husband is on Day 18. I read that they need to be at 50 before he can be discharged and 5000 to be ‘normal’ but the measures seem to depend on how they are expressed. I don’t need a full pharmacological explanation, but they are currently 0.42. On whatever measure that suggests, what should we be expecting to hear before he can be considered fit for discharge.? And what would ‘normal. be?
