Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Can you tell me what a normal red cell count is? Why do you question this referral? Why do you think my heart needs investigation?
I recently had a chest x-ray and was told that my COPD has not got any worse. Its just that my shortness of breath has got worse but when resting my breathing returns to normal after about 8-10 minutes. Would the x-ray have shown anything about the heart. Do you think the red cells count of 54 could be due to an infection somewhere?
