** I called the doc and she said my blood is looking much more normal .
It was my lipase that was really high in the first test and that's back down. The only thing that's high now is my bilirubin. That could mean gallstones, but I'm not in any pain, so that's a good sign. Just have to do a follow up this week and possibly an u/s. If I have another one of those spells I have to go right in for more blood tests. That's a bit of a relief it's nothing that needs immediate attention.
Send some good vibes to me today!
So I ended up going to the doctor Wednesday for the discomfort I had under my ribs and they drew blood. Didn't hear anything back from the lab, so I figured everything was normal.
Last night at 9:30pm I got a call from my doctor. Never good to get a call from your doctor at 9:30 on a Saturday night. The nurses forgot to call me this week and my blood work came back pretty bad. It could be my pancreas or liver. She sounded shocked that I wasn't doubled over in pain based on what the labs said. She said "I won't make you come in now, but you need to get tested again tomorrow." Blech.
I'm about to go get my blood redrawn and will find out the results this afternoon. If it comes up bad, I might have to be admitted for further observation. Please send some good vibes that things went back to normal, since I'm not having one of those spells anymore.
