Hi all, I had this test on Thursday and it was not as bad as I thought. They took the blood from my ear lobe, did it 3 times in all and it was just like having my ears pierced. Thanks everyone for all your good wishes , at a time like this when things seem really bleak it’s really good to know I have the support of all you wonderful people, you really did help. Lots of love and good wishes . 😘 .XXX

I'm so pleased everything went well for you, wish they would take blood gases like that at the hospital near me. You have a wonderful day and please keep posting take care 😊 Bernadette and Jack 🐕 xxxxxx

Good to know that all went well. I did wonder if they might take the sample from your ear and glad that they did.

Glad your test went well. I feel like you about this forum. I haven't had a serious crisis since I joined it, but I know, if I do, you'll all be there for me.

Glad to hear all went well.

Well done 👍😃 glad to hear that all went well for you happy day 😘

Glad it went well

Good to hear all went well XAnita

Great news that all went so well x

I’ve had that blood test from the earlobe done at the Royal Brompton. They put a big plaster on afterwards, and apparently it’s known as the “Brompton Earring”!

Really pleased it all went well CELATO . It will be reassuring to any others having to go for same procedure, knowing your experience was okay. Take care. xxx

Glad it went well for you , got mine in a couple of weeks, as I have been on antibiotics and you have to leave it 6 weeks . Will be glad to get my oxygen levels sorted. Take care 🌷

All good dear! Keep safe

That’s good to hear! You learn something new everyday don’t you!...I never knew they could do it from your ear! Did you treat yourself after? I always used to buy myself a chocolate flapjack as a treat afterwards 😂

Yes, that’s true. We had a takeaway as I didn’t feel like cooking. X

Perfect!!! I’m glad you looked after you! 🤗

Thanks for letting us know what it was like. Hope all results are good. I'm always anxious when faced with a 'new to me ' test and it's comforting to hear from folks who have been thru them...not just Dr. Google!
