Time: I am sorry to hear this. The hospital and physicians are likely checking for any complications from the surgery in this period of time and many, when admitted to the hospital and post surgery, have delirium which can cause confusion and memory issues.

They can't detect copper in my urine after two 24 hour urine tests. What can this indicate. My blood copper is rite on the normal mark and my cerulospasmin is a little low ..I am a 25 year old male.

If none's detectable, the physician needs to call the pathologist in charge of the lab and ask why -- there's a problem.

Good question!: THERE IS NO SUCH THING as the "infamous" 24 Hour Flu (Used to be called 24 hour "grip" due to muscle pain which accompanied it) Probably arose because the WORSE symptoms are usually in the first day or two! The term also was mistaken for FOOD POISONING which generally produces symptoms which are worse in the first 24 hours! Hope this helps Dr Z ...Read more
