My doctor's nurse just called to tell me that my wbc is 16000 and my platelets are 64. The nurse wants me to get my urine checked. I do not feel like I have the signs of a urinary tract infection. I have had bad rectal pain for weeks, and have had 2 rectal abscesses, one last june, one in december. I also have had a number of abdominal abscesses. I have been on daily antibiotics, xifaxin for 3 months.
I have an MRI scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. My husband is insisting I go to the ER and force them to do the MRI now. I hate to be an alarmist. What do I do?
