Pheochromocytoma ?

Had some lab test's done Nometanephrine and Metanephrine .
Normal results are < .90 Normetanephrine < .50 Metanephrine

My results were 1.3 nmol/l Metanephrine  and .34 nmol/l Metanephrine

Does this require futher attention .
Seems im having alot of symptoms of a pheo ?

It looks like one of those tests is elevated.
Is the doc going to test again or send you on to a surgeon?

I had both adrenals removed.
