    Does this sentences need commas?

    The doctors dictates on this report:

    CBC and SMA-18 drawn a few months ago were normal. Does a comma need to be after SMA-18 and ago? Please help!

    Could we rephrase the sentence this way?
    CBC and SMA-18 which were drawn a few months ago were normal.
    The relative clause in the sentence is defining, so no commas are needed in front and after it.
