It is very important to report any signs of infection, chills, and aches as welll as fever and that doesn't mean that you wait a day or two to see what happens or that I will tell them on Monday when I go back in as I don't want to bother them on the weekend. That is exactly why there is someone on call to deal with those issues and don't let it wait. Too often, Monday morning comes and someone has had a problem over the weekend and waited till Monday to come in and then we are scrambling to try to help correct the situation. Your doctor may prescribe a medication that will increase your white blood cells. In the meantime, you as a patient- remember to wash your hands, stay away from sick people, and avoid those situations that may increase your risk of infection and always make it a good day. S
