My WBC was 15 the day of my surgery. They weren't too concerned bc they give you antibiotics before and after surgery. However, after surgery my WBC shot up to 27 and then 6 hours later up to 29. I completely freaked out my surgeon and had about 6 different doctors stop by my hospital room trying to figure out what the heck was happening.
After about a dozen tests, they determined the increase was my body reacting to the stress of surgery. The count was back down to 21 when they discharged me. Given my experience, I don't think your WBC should stop your surgery. It's really not that high.
