Wow...hi 3lions. I don't think the online DNA testing will give you the definitive result you seem to be after. I think, all they do with that is tell you the cultural bloodlines from which you originated. Eg they might say, from your DNA they've determined that you have 50% Nordic, 20% Irish and 30% Italian, but that's about it. They're not going to identify your father and his last known address. Even if they had that level of information, which would require having a sample of everyone's DNA for comparison to yours, it would be an invasion of his privacy. They couldn't do it without first getting his permission.
I think the product of the Ancestry DNA is simply good conversation material for the next party you attend but that's about it.
I'm sorry to hear you have health issues. Even thought they are genetic, knowing who your father is/was isn't going to change anything. Just take the advice of your doctors and treat the issue and have a long and happy life. Dwelling on who your biological father is seems to me to be waste of valuable time. That's my dumb ass opinion.
All the best for Christmas and the new year.
