Post How long after an MI will there elevated Troponin levels?

And if you can answer that, what number constitutes an elevated reading? The cardiologist I last saw advised me my levels had been "barely above normal" but I think he was basing this on the damage occurring 24 hrs before the test when I had some chest pain. I have since discovered the chest pains made be acid reflux and I am guessing the actual damage occurred earlier that week as I had taken cocaine twice in the five days before the test. Subsequent enzyme tests were negative as were various EKGs and a recent ultrasound but I would like to have a better idea as to what actually happened to me. Anyone?

I don't know how long they will remain elevated after an MI. I know that it took about 24 hrs for mine to appear elevated ( I seem to remember 6.0 is what the internist said). He also informed me that it was a very minor elevation comparatively. I don't know the reference range to compare it to offhand either. I think my levels decreased by 48 hrs post MI, but then again, I am not positive of that either.
