First Round of Blood Tests... nervous
      #260069 - 01/12/12 04:15 PM

I have a blood test schedule for tomorrow. There's a LONG list of tests. I dont think I'll have much blood left. Here is the list. I'm a little nervous. Does this look like a good "first test?" Anything missing?

1. Torch IGG Panel
2. HIV 1 RNA, Quantitative Real Time PCR
3. Hep C
4. STD panel test
5. Phenosense GT
6. Lipid Panel
7. CBC
8. Hep A, Hep B
9. Amylase
10. Lymophcyte Panel
11. HLA B

Just try to relax my friend. When bloodwork is done there is always alot of vials. Sometimes 5 sometimes 8 ,What ever the amount don't worry. There will still be blood left in your body . My hubby, who is with the Elite Controller studies , when he does bloodwork for them , once a year, they use super size tubes and still lots of them. Just be thankful that it doesn't take as many pokes as it use to be for him. I use to tell him I'm going to stick a water hose in his mouth and make him stand with his arms outstretched and turn him into a lawn sprinkler. lol You'll do just fine..

Look up to the Heavens for the answers to Lifes questions .
