Well I had another blood test today and my GP has ordered a "full mot" as he called it. After telling the nurse that I was hoping my iron level would hopefully be higher than last time, she checked my iron level on the screen and ask me if I had had my iron tablets, I told her I had been given a two week supply early October, she then proceeded to tell me that I should've been on iron tablets since July and that I should be taking iron tablets for six months and then have a repeat blood test. I told her that i was so angry that I was not told this information in October. I should've been told in October that I should request a repeat prescription for iron tablets and that the receptionist was at fault for not telling me this information. Why was I not told in July that I needed Iron tablets then?. I have no idea. I have been going through absolute hell with pain and dreadful exhaustion for the last few weeks to the stage where I could barely function. I'm fully expecting a phone call from my GP's receptionist informing i need to go back and see him about my latest blood results or he could take the easy way out and have a prescription waiting for me to collect. If the receptionist failed to tell me this information in October, then why did my GP not tell me this last week when i saw him?.I'm absolutely fuming that these so called medical professionals are playing god with my life.
