This may sound totally unfounded, but Steve Jobs death really hit me. I have had pancreas issuse for years, ranging from pancreatitis to acute pancreatitis, to cysts on my pancreas and biliary obstructions.
So pretty much lots of pain.
Anyway, does anyone here know off hand which blood tests need to be run to check for pancreatic cancer. I already sent my doctor an email, but that could take a week to hear from him or an hour.
Anway, with my scope coming tuesday and my current pancreas problems, elevated enzymes, I am worried.
I may already have had blood tests for this, kaiser gives me access to see the results online, if someone knows which test might indicate it I could look at my own results over the past years.
I am sure I am just building this up in my head, nothing to see here, please move along....
after you answer that is :)
