On a routine blood test I was found to have too much sodium, during that evening the duty doctor phoned and asked me to go in to the local hospital for another blood test on the next day (Saturday). The result was normal sodium but too high calcium, back to the health centre for another blood test. After a few days my GP phoned and asked me to go in and chat about the results. She explained what it was and the possible causes. and referred me to hospital, next day I got a card saying phone in and book an appointment which we did. The following day (Friday) the Consultant's office phoned and asked me to go in on the following Monday (yesterday), a long chat and another blood test. Then this morning my Respiratory Consultant phoned and asked me to make an appointment to see him in the next few days During the afternoon the Endocrine Consultant phoned with the test results which showed nothing serious but he needs a blood test done at 09.00 in the morning to confirm if my adrenalin gland is ok or damaged by years of steroids. I find it amazing that two Consultants can find the time to talk to each other and call me personally the next day. There is something to be said for living in Devon
