blood count
I went for an eye operation three months ago. When the Dr. did the pre-operation test he said my blood count was a bit low but everything is fine I can be operated. I just wanted to find out what does this mean?Does it mean when your blood count is low your hiv+???

Lizel, he probably meant that you’re slightly anaemic. The best would be to have a full blood count repeated and see what it says now. Good luck.
