Hi...I have Leukemia (AML) and I had a bone marrow transplant a year ago. I just went to the Dr. and my white blood count is low. I am currently on Bactrim. I wanted to know if anyone else has had a BMT then have their white blood count drop any. I am really scared and trying to figure out what might be causing it.

I too had AML and a BMT that was one year ago. I also had a low well just under the norm 3.4 wb cell count and was on the Bactrim too. but now I am off the Bactrim for 4 weeks and still have a 3.4 --not a concern. how low was your wb count and how long post BMT are You?
