In brief: If you are the one..

Who is neutropenic, at 33yo, you would likely know the answer to the question if your neutropenia was clinically significant.
You would have had recurrent bacterial infections, some even life threatening. If your asking for someone else, it depends on the cause of the neutropenia. If the neutropenia is clinically significant, you need to be vigilant and contact your dr for anyfever/infection.
