Low white count on Immuran

Ive been managing my chronic poichitics amazingly with a combo of Immuran and rotating antibiotics for about 4-5 years, but my white count has dropped low enough they are asking me to stop Immuran for 2 weeks and then retest. Obviously my best hope is that my white count goes back up, but then what is next if that happens? See if I can maintain symptom management at a lower dose? Immuran wasn’t around during my UC days, so just trying to get a sense of whether I might still be able to continue this drug to manage. Of course I have angst about possible lymphoma in the back of my mind and nervousness that going to biologics is my next step (also have anxiety about switching to biologics-not because I am worried about being on them, just because I’ve liked having biologics in my back pocket as I have slowly failed all other treatment options). Hoping to hear from someone who has successfully stayed on inmuran after a dropped white count to help me stay hopeful
