Today a second attempt a doctor finally managed to take some blood from my arterial vein ( Gas test) to text my oxygen intake & I was told it was a bit low & she mentioned something about Hypoxia so she turned up my oxygen tube from 1 litre to 3 litres
I filled in a form for Home Oxygen & gave it back to the nurse so got to wait to see what happens after ive got an appointment for long term oxygen on 14 th of Septemberin a different hospital so see what happens
I had one of those blood gas tests in a and e back in 2017 when I got diagnosed with blood clots in my lungs and it hurt when they took blood out of the artery in my arm rather than a vein when the young doctor sat me down and explained what he was doing and reassured me.
At first shr failed because she missed the vein & admitted she failed. I emailed my specialist who suggedtrd i had oxygen in the first place this wss going on
Thwn sbout 20-30mins later shr wss back & this time managed it to my relief so got bruises & plasters all over those areas
As much as i appreciate lots theyre doing this for my benefit to hopefully stop these constant visits i hate being their prize pincushion
They told me it ciuld take days ir sometimes weeks according to priority so whether i get to take some hpme ehen im releasrd or not
Appatrntly a member of the fire service has to come & do an sssessment if thr house
Most people have told me an ABG did hurt.
