I am wondering how many people had (or recall having had) been told they had a low white blood cell count before being diagnosed?

I never had before, but my general practitioner called me back in for a re-draw of my blood, when I came back with a low white blood cell count after I showed up with all my complaints about major D for months on end. That wasn't what got me referred to the GI in the end, but initially they did call me to come back in for a redo on the white blood cell count. I've seen it mentioned a few times here now, so I'm wondering if that is common for us?

I didn't vote, because my WBC count was low when it was tested right after my colonoscopy and (non)diagnosis three months ago. My doctor didn't seem to be concerned about it and didn't mention any retesting. I assume it's still low.

My white count has generally been slightly elevated, not low.

I didn't vote because no option fits me...

Yes, I have low white blood count. I tested low a couple years before LC diagnosis, and again just prior to diagnosis. Doc never seemed concerned. I don't trust docs. :-(
