I'm at a loss....... I just received a notice from my surgeon's office today from my blood draw on May 7th. They have indicated (without giving me the actual numbers......) that I have a High Copper Level. I have no clue what this means or why it happens so I looked it up on-line and now I'm TERRIFIED! Looks like there are all kinds of repercussions for my LO.
Do any of you have any experience with this? I tried both my OB and my surgeon's offices, but they were both closed for the night. I am going first thing tomorrow morning to have my Ceruloplasmin test done. As soon as I can, I will be calling both of my doctors. In the meantime, I sit here a bundle of nerves.
Hi Mary! I know it's been a while since you posted about your copper, but I too have this issue now (almost 9 years post op) and wondered how "it turned out" for you? I also noticed we are relatively close to one another in MD! I live in Lexington Park (in St. Mary's County) how neat! I would love an update on your copper situation and any helpful suggestions/comments on your experience! This stuff is scary! Thanks! Glori
