Hi! I had a fairly severe attack of gall bladder disease today and ended in ER. The doctor has told me to see a surgeon, and follow-up with my PCP. I’ll be seeing her tomorrow. He had an ultra-sound done and found that I have quite a few stones. including some blocking. I’ve had high cholesterol problems since being on strong chemo after cancer surgery, and was told it had limited the function of my liver. Have you heard of this before?
Also, in addition to veggie shakes, may I continue to have my smoothies, since they’re made with non-fat yogurt, and sherbet, with no fat in them? I need to do all possible to keep up the calcium level, so I don’t have any more broken bones. Does the calcium I take cause more problems with the gall bladder? Thanks!!
Some automated hematology analyzers report the total number of immature granulocytes (IG) present in a person's blood sample. Immature granulocytes are white blood cells that have not fully developed before being released from the bone marrow into the blood. They may include metamyelocytes, myelocytes, and promyelocytes. These cells are normally only present in the bone marrow because they are precursors of neutrophils, the predominant type of white cells in blood. The presence of immature granulocytes in the blood may occur in various diseases, such as infection or a blood cancer, and thus will often prompt further investigation, which may include additional laboratory testing.
