Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Normal blood leukocyte counts are 4.3 to 10.8  10 x 9/L with neutrophils representing 45 to 74% of the cells, bands 0 to 4%, lymphocytes 16 to 45%, monocytes 4 to 10%, eosinophils 0 to 7%, and basophils 0 to 2%.

Since you have mentioned absolute neutropenia, but have not mentioned the exact levels I might not be able to analyse it appropriately.

When the absolute neutrophil count (ANC; band forms and mature neutrophils combined) falls to 500 cells/L, control of endogenous microbial flora (e.g., mouth, gut)is
impaired; when the ANC is 200/L, the inflammatory process is absent. This can result in severe life threatening infections.

You might consult a hematologist, who can examine you and your lab reports and determine the exact course of action.
