Sara,

With the information provided, I don't think that you can draw any good conclusions. When myelocytes are high, it is a sign of marrow stress, but it is really difficult to ascribe a reason without more history and testing. Some causes are viral infections, vitamin deficiencies, hormone imbalances, and of course the other possibilities of some form of marrow failure.

The percentage does not seem that high at a glance, especially with everything else in order.

Unfortunately, I think that additional testing and patience are going to be needed to get to the root cause.
