Pregnant. Had a distance laser lithotripsy of a kidney stone. Panic?

Hi, I am 25 weeks pregnant (28 yo). 3 weeks ago I had a distance laser lithotripsy of a kidney stone . Today I have received my blood test results and I am worried with some figures, especially monocytes (absolute Mnocytes 1.14 * 10^9/L, 11% Monocytes for 100 other WBC ). Should I panic? I this could be due to pregnancy and recent surgery? Almost all other figures are within the norm or deviate slightly. Urine test are ideal -no deviations. Thank You in advance

Hi young lady, thanks for asking the question. You have no reason to worry at all. Do get follow up checks as advised by your obstetrician and urologist. Best wishes for your pregnancy. RB

No you need not worry. If total leucocyte count is normal and you have no fever, these test reports do not signify anything serious.
if the surgeon has left a stent then that has to be removed at the earliest
Keep looking for the signs of urinary infection
