In brief: Probably unrelated.

Low vitamin d levels are very common.
Probably unrelated to your carcinoid tumor & colectomy.

In brief: Take more vitamin D

Take more vitamin d.
Some people need as much as 10, 000 iu daily to keep their level above 50 ng/ml which many of is is therapeutic level. The vitamin d should have no effect on your neutrophil count and a slightly low count is usually of no clinica.
