I have an appt. with my GI doc at 8 in the morning. My left side under my ribs (as well as the right) is really hurting today and the nausea is worst. I can't wait to hear what she has to say. Thank you all for your input and I'll let you know what I find out.
Sorry to jump into this thread like this, but I have a question.
I noticed some of your ALT'S and AST's are extremely high.
My Dr. told me my levels were high also when I found out I had HCV.
AST - 26 (I think that's the normal one)
ALT - 65 (He said that was high for me)
Does that sound about right?
I have trouble reading this lab stuff out, but mine shows up this:
HEP C VIRAL AB REACTIVE *
Now according to my paperwork, the * stands for (* Abn Alpha)
Any idea what that means?
Again, sorry to highjack the thread, but those ALT's and AST's rang a bell to me.
