    Of course you are worried. Just try not to jump to any bad conclusions. A high number like this can (simply) indicate some sort of infection or inflammation.
    My advice is to allow the doctor to tell you what they think. Then ask what the treatment is. Ask how long the treatment will take. Ask if there are any side effects from the treatment. If appropriate, ask if it is something contagious. Wishing you both the best, Wendy, come back and let us know how the appointment went.
