Re: Could this be lymphoma? After recent appointment with blood specialist?

Good for you! Day by day is a great start.. I got some abnormal test results back three weeks ago saying my liver enzymes were in the 1,000's. (the normal range is something like 20-50) and they said my liver was inflammed as well.. I had been fighting an awful virus during that time (tonsicilits, high fever, etc) My doc did just about every test in the book. 6 cbc w/ differentials, metabolic panels, ultrasound, ANA (which was negative) etc. Everything has checked out except for the liver. My liver on the ultrasound came out looking fine but they did find four gallstones. Oh joy. so I wil have to get my galbladder removed this summer. The doc finally diagnosed me with acute mono, but the weird part is, I had already had it back when I was 15. My doc is convinced that I a) never realy had it back then, or b) have some reoccurance. I am not buying it, and am trying to figure out whats wrong with me. Every week I go in for a liver panel test so he can see if the numbers are dropping or raising. Right now they are almost back to normal which is a relief but let me tell you, it was a SCARY THING TO GO THROUGH! I think when any of us feel sick and our bodies look or feel different we freak out. So that is my story.. I am 28 btw. Oh I also have horrible anxiety, so I went from thinking I had leukemia, to hodgkins (my neck was so swollen w/ glands it ws scary) to pancreas cancer (had those enzyme tests done too, they were normal) to stomach cancer, you name it, I think I had/have it. I have scared myself silly to the point where I am not even hungry anymore and have lot weight as a result. My next dr appt is June 9th. It is always scary going through stuff like this. I think the waiting is the hardest part. You have to live your life until you see your doc. I know how hard it is, but worrying and stress will make you feel like you are sicker. Stress and anxiety can cause you to sweat.. just try and take it easy. We will get through this together ok?
