Cd-57

I am wondering if this test is needed to be done in a certain amount of time? What I mean by this is... Today I went to get my bloodwork done at Lab corp and I realized that tom is a holiday. Will they run the tests before the holiday or does the blood sit? Does that make sense

Re: Cd-57

Hi purplepiegirl! Long time no hear. I hope you're doing okay.

I can't imagine that the lab would let the blood sit too long. I don't know what the laws are, but the blood has a shelf life, so they have x many hours to get the test run.

I wouldn't worry.

Let us know what's up with you, okay?

Peace and health to you,
Mickie

Re: Cd-57

hi purplepiegirl
I am sorry to hear you been sick Lab corp is the one company who does a more accurate cd-57 test from what I hear from m =y doctors asistant She is very helpful a understands our position we are in I would not worry too much I think you are good hands with lab corp Just keep in mind it may with the holidays take a week to ten days to get the results I belive they send them to a lab in nj for testing when you are on the eastcoast
hang in ther and good luck you I been infected for almost 2 1/2 years treated for a year and a half I have really bad sleep problams so I almost never sleep which leaves me exausted mos of the day
good luck
Ryebeach

Wow you have a good memory!! Its been awhile since I have been on this board. Unfortunatly I have been frequenting the Cervical Cancer board I am currently healing from a hysterectomy and doing well. I had given up on my lyme diagnosis for a while until my husband had to work in a llmd office and got to talking with the nurse pract. He was convinced that with my lyme band positive #23 I am for sure with lyme. He quickly got me in to see the Dr. and I had a very positive experience. He was telling me my symptoms before I told him. He has given me blood work (they took 5 viles) and has put me on Doxy for 4 mos. I have not started it yet because I am only 5 wks post op and to be honest a bit nervous that my body needs time to heal before I put it through abx. I think I will start monday because I have not been feeling well again lately so Im talking myself into thinking the sooner the better. Anyway I wanted to make sure that they dont mess up the blood work because I have NO trust in Dr.s or Labs at this point!!!
