What should my white blood cell count be after a liver transplant?

A Answers (1)

  • The normal white blood cell values range between 3000 and 9000. If the body is fighting bacteria the white blood cell count increases above 10,000. Certain medications (like Cellcept) after liver transplant can reduce white cells to less than 2000 cells, therefore making you vulnerable to infections. If your white cells become too low your nurse practitioner will give you an injection (Neupogen) to stimulate your bone marrow to increase production of white blood cells.
