Do you have any other symptom?
Lost 30 lbs
Did you have any other test?
pain feels like it is all around the ribcage. They took out the gallbladder
I have blood tests here. All are in normal ranges, but at the edges
Did you have ultrasound or scan?
several. First showed ovarian cyst, but I've had a complete Hyst. Then the 2nd said it wasn't there. ?
If I don't eat, I have no pain.
Did you have one after the amylase test?
No. Just got the results.
High amylase level can be associated with disease of the pancreas.
It can be increased in inflammation of pancreas or pancreatitis.
Tumor can also cause its rise.
It can also be associated other conditions like bile duct blockage.
In pancreatitis, there can be pain in abdomen.
I would suggest to discuss your results with doctor.
That is what I keep reading, but everyone keeps acting like I'm crazy. It really does feel like something is blocked after I eat! If my husband pounds on my back it sometimes eases the pain. Mean anything?
It does not mean anything particular. Sometimes it can have a soothing effect.
How do they test for blockage?
But as you are losing weight, you should have further tests.
They can do MRCP scan.
Do the low ALP and SGPT have anything to do with this?
The lower level suggests that there can be nutritional deficiency.
Protein deficiency can be there.
Probably because it hurts to eat....
Yes, as you are feeling pain, you may be taking less food.
Thank you for your help. I will ask about the MRCP scan. It helps to find someone who thinks this may be pancreas too.
You can read about the scan in this link.
You are always welcome.
