Just when I thought my visits to the hospital were over for a while . little red spots appeared again. I had them during chemo so knew it was low platlets. Quick visit to my doctor for a blood test. Results next day showed low red cells so needed iron tablets and was told platlets ok. I asked what they were and told 17. Thoulght that was low checked my notes and when picking up iron prescription asked for doctor to recheck. I was right is low but doctor not picked up, late in the day so sent to A&e for another blood test. 3 hours later blood test results back and raising thank goodness straight back home alot of hassle and time wasted.
now wondering if I should suggest my doctors surgery review procedures for checking blood results, if I had not known about what levels should be would not have been picked up.
