How long does it take to do the a1a blood test
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

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
