    Waiting for blood test results on holiday weekend

    I feel so stupid. I had diarrhea and didnít feel well on Friday so I called for a virtual consultation. The doctor ordered some routine blood tests and I took yesterday.

    Always the CBC test return time is 24hrs so itís now passed that. That means something is wrong and the doctor isnít in office to sign off on the blood tests.

    She isnít my primary doctor. Now Iím left wondering what Is going wrong 😑. I just had a CBC for something else 1 month ago and it was ok.

    So Iíve learned a big lesson not to take tests on July 4th weekend. Now I canít stop thinking

    Not sure why but Iím afraid something is wrong on the CBC one.
    None of the tests are returned

    Ordering a CBC for diarrhea and malaise is kind of extreme. They are probably only concerned about your WBC count to see if there is any sign of infection. How are you feeling now? Any better?

    Thanks FlapJ. Iím feeling better. The tests came back. CBC is fine. The Metabolic panel has Creatine Serum at 0.52 (min level is 0.57) and Alt 44 (38 is max).

    The doctor ordering the lab tests havenít called me. My primary care doc is not in office today.

    I hope my liver/kidney doesnít have a big issue because of these numbers ugh 😩
