Well, apparently the normal range is 4.5-11.0 th/uL (so around 4,500- 11,000).. Right now, mine has been at least 14.5 for the past two months, last time my doc said it was pretty high but most likely indicative of inflammation. WBC also goes up when you're under a lot of stress as well. Did he tell you what the rest of your blood levels looked like? Are you anemic as well?
Not sure why he'd jump right to hospital admission though, has your CBC been abnormal before? Mine just wanted to wait and see if it would go down (which it didn't) but some doctors take things more seriously than others, which isn't necessarily a bad thing!!
