High WBC for over 2 months on Valcyte

    I just got my lab results. I am now getting them monthly while on Valcyte. I know that a side effect of the Valcyte treatment is low WBC and RBC but my WBC have been above normal. They are ranging from 11.3 to 13.3. This last lab test was 12.4. I still have intermittent low grade fevers and significant stomach issues. I was wondering why they are above normal. Am I fighting the HHV-6 and EBV in my body and my immune system is triggering the increase in WBC? I am a little concerned that the WBC would be even higher if I wasn't on Valcyte. Has anyone else on Valcyte had an increase?
