So, still no joy from the doctor so I have decided to take matters into my own hands and have today completed my own blood test using a mail order kit!! I was teetering on the idea of a private endo but still feel that I shouldn't have to pay for what should be offered to me on the NHS. However, as there is no chance of that happening I decided to take action. The kit, at under a hundred pounds, was the cheaper alternative so I went for that. I will admit I was a bit nervous about doing it but, for anyone else who is contemplating it, it was, in fact, easy and pain free. Well, I say easy - the procedure itself was easy enough but my blood decided not to flow and I struggled to fill the bottle!! However, I hope there was enough and I have sent it off. Now just to wait..............
