So last week had my fasting blood tests done. I'm not sure how many of the tests I requested with the GP will have been done. Apparently that is up to the technician at the lab to decide which ones he/she thinks are worth doing. So that's pretty awesome and fills me with even more confidence that the NHS really do want to get me better (provided it doesn't cost.more.then £10 a test). When the GP said in regard to one requested test "the lab will refuse to.do.that because it's too expensive" I did.offer.to pay the Tenner myself and upfront.
Anyhoo I digress somewhat. So Tuesday afternoon I ring the surgery and ask if my test results are back. Yes the helpful lady on the phone says.all are normal. Well, I think to myself "Colleen,be calm 😕 the Nice lady 😇 is only doing her job which is to protect the equally nice GP 😇from all the nasty annoying patients😈 who expect to discuss their results directly with him" forsooth whatever next will we expect, there might be no end to it.........imagine, the pesky patients will start asking for a correct diagnosis and adequate medication next!!!!😱
So I grit.my teeth and say lovely 😀but actually I'm ringing because.I want a print out of my results. WHY? says she their NORMAL.
Gently I repeat "that's great but I WANT A PRINTOUT OF MY BLOOD TESTS RESULTS" emphasise on MY BLOOD TESTS. Which one do you want she sweetly asks. TEETH GNASHINGLY I respond ALL OF.THEM PLEASE.
Having, I think, hope and pray, established between us what my requirements are, she then says "we will pass a note to Doctor and see if he says you can have them". Call back tomorrow.
Tomorrow came (that actually was yesterday) I ring. Hello please can.I have the PRINTOUT of my blood test results. Oh such Joy Doctor has agreed 🙌 You can pick them up from reception. I arrive at the surgery, ten minutes later. The very building from whence I spoke to lady who told me I can collect them. However what apparently had slipped her mind,passed her by or maybe they keep her in the special patient closet which is (in the dark being fed bull manure) she somehow failed to mention that the surgery was in fact and had been CLOSED all day for.training.
Phew that feels better, bit of ranting and raving 😤😬 almost as good as an inadequate dose of levothyroxine that.
Today is another day and I shall go and assail the fortress known as Doctors RECEPTION. Should I succeed in my quest I will post the results
In.all seriousness now I am hoping that you lovely peeps might be able to help me decipher them a bit. My concerns are Hashimotos/Adrenal insufficiency possibly. Please.come back for.the next tedious instalment of 'Can I have my results PLEEEEASE' 😁
