Hey girl...haven't heard from you in a while! All my symptoms have gone away......almost 2 months now! YEA! Hope you are doing good? Have you checked your amylase in a while? I am no longer on birth control, so I figured I'd get it checked at my next gyn. visit in a few months! Take care! Holly
I am still having problems sending mail from this to you! I hope it is not my computer! Did you get my other note? I am scheduled to see the Dr. on next Tuesday, but it won't be scheduled until a week or two, this is a preliminary! Pain is only faint, nothing like before! I hope you are doing well! Thanks for all the prayers! Holly
Hey girl.....I hope your not getting multiple notes of this. I have had some problems with the submission when I click post it. I was just thinking of you, I received the latest call from my Dr. yesterday who stated that from the differential tests, they were able to conclude that I do not have Macroamylasemia :( and that it is the pancreatic enzymes that are high, more than salivary. He is sending me for an Endoscopic ultrasound in 3 weeks (that's the soonest). He stated that we have ruled out all the bad stuff with the CT, but that this would help further define if I have any pancreatic damage or stomach mucousal issues....so we'll see! Thanks so much for checking on me! I hope you are doing good! Holly
Hey Margie! I just received a call from my Dr. again......I had my blodwork redrawn on the 5th just to see since the pain went away if the Amylase would be normal......well, it's lower than it has been in a while 123....but still high. He now wants me to come in for a differential to see if it is the P or the S type. If it is the P type, then it may be some adrenal dysfunction. If it is the S type, well could be anything affecting the salivary glands. Weird thing is I have had what I would classify as a toothache or slight swelling under the ear that comes and goes for some time......I am wondering now if this may not be the problem......there is no identifiable swelling.....just thought I would let you know the latest saga. I am supposed to go in one day this week......
