Waiting for results always stinks... based on what you've said I would be really surprised if you had any of them either.  Good luck!!

machelle,

I understand the waiting for test results. It seems like a life time but try not to think about it and then the results will just show up.

Thinking of you and gentle hugs to you.

Hi machelle..I went thru this a few years ago..my liver was not pleased with me either..and no I didn't have hep. of any sort..but what I did have was a very bad dose of anxiety eyes we had been thru a very stressful time..moved from one place to another..very bad time etc. The good news is that when my life had settled down..so did my liver - thank goodness - coz I was really worried about it too..

Machelle,

I'm sending out lots of good wishes and prayers that your tests show nothing seriously wrong, and that your doctors do find some answers for why you've been feeling rough lately.

Please let us know what you find out, and try to take you mind off the waiting as much as you can. Maybe the garden?

Love

Hey Machelle,

I had test this morning and they have told me 3-4 working days for results to get back to my PCP.  I am being positive too, and heck with it, not much I can do about it now so I am going to just get on with life. 

You know I am right here for you my friend.
Hugs

Kitt

Lyn,
 
I'm not sure that gallstones/gallbladder problems would show up as an infection.  But if it's gallstones it could very likely show up on an ultrasound (I think that's how they found mine-can't remember for sure though).  When the surgery was done to remove the gallbladder, he said it was full of stones and there was a lot of scar tissue.
 
Love ya,
Sis

Machelle,

I'm glad to hear that the hepatitis tests all came back negative. I know that still leaves you wondering and worrying about why you don't feel well, and why your liver enzymes are high, but ruling out such a serious disease as hep is a good thing.

Have your doctors said what they want to do now? Please keep us posted. We really care about you and what you're going through.

Love and hugs,
percycat

Hey there Girlfriend,

I am home and glad to read your test was normal.  :)
FYI for anyone interested:

Cholecystitis is inflammation of the gallbladder, usually resulting from a gallstone blocking the cystic duct.

Gallbladder inflammation usually results from a gallstone blocking the flow of bile.

Typically, people have abdominal pain that lasts more than 6 hours, fever, and nausea.

Ultrasonography can usually detect signs of gallbladder inflammation.

The gallbladder is removed, often using a laparoscope. Reference: Merck Manual

Hope this helps you in some small way.  Hugs galore.
Kitt
