This is an incredibly specific topic but I wanted to write a quick blog about it before I forget, so it can be searchable for people in the future. The thing about PCOS is that doctors still aren't completely comfortable with it and there's still a great deal to learn and research.
I am about 16 days away from having my VSG and had my pre-op lab work done a few days ago. I had an elevated white blood cell count (12.3 normal range is 4.0-10.0), and Eosinophils, which is basically a type of white blood cells, were at 5 and normal range is 1-4, and my ANC- Absolute neutrophil count, which is basically the total number of WBC in your system, was at 8.0 and normal range is 1.6-7.0.
Of course the first thing that came to my mind was the big C, closely followed by, OH NO THEY'RE GOING TO POSTPONE MY SURGERY! But I started doing some research and after consulting with Dr.Google, I found some interesting information.
I found a study that basically says women with PCOS typically have an elevated WBC. Read the abstract here; http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23820138
And another very similar study where they found that the WBC, Neutrophil count, and leukocyte count were all much higher in women with PCOS. Read the abstract here; http://www.medscape.com/medline/abstract/21417649
Basically it looks like it boils down to the inflammation associated with PCOS.
Like say, I just wanted to put this information out there in case some panicked soul like me needs to read it.
