Does anyone know? My doctor did alot of labs on Tuesday but they still hadn't received all of them back. I have hereditary pancreatitis, but recently my liver function tests have been high, anywhere from 300 to over 1000, so they think something else is going on and we did the Alpha 1 test, my grandma had copd and ephysima, and passed away from lung cancer. I hate to get ahead of myself, but does anyone have a lot of upper right quadrent abdominal pain, and what can they do about it. Thanks

" Hi Jackie,
from what I can remember as it was 12 years ago, my blood test came back with the results under two weeks but Im in the UK so things may be slightly different to the States.
Hope this helps a little.
Good luck with your results and if you need any further help please don't hesitate to ask me or anyone here.
all the best to you and yours,
keep us posted if you can.
Take care Lisa "
