Your attachments are not there .So it is difficult to advice .So please write down impression /interpretation of all reports .You can wait for 2-3 days .Get TLC DLC done again some times it takes time for these values to become normal .If it persists Pt. should be investigated to rule out myeloproliferative disorder/lymphoproliferative disorders.
