I have been trying to get my latest thyroid reading from my doctors surgery yet again. This is exactly as it happened.
When my blood was taken the nurse said she would test t3 and T4 etc. I asked for a copy of the results. She said no problem ask the receptionist when they come back. I pointed out that I knew I wouldn't get them so asked her to put a little note and get them ready for me.
1 I went down asked the receptionist to print them as they weren't ready. Her response we are not trained to do so asked her to get the doctor to do it. I asked her to let me know when they were ready.
2 I waited two days went back in and they weren't there so she said she would ask the doctor again
3 I phoned and asked if they were ready the next day. Her reply nothing here so asked her to bring it up on screen and give me them over the phone again sorry I am not trained to do it lol.
4 I asked to speak to a doctor and her reply was , if you need to speak to a doctor you must ring at eight thirty and make an appointment. By now I am furious.
5 I said this is now a farce and said I was quite entitled to have a print out even if I had to pay and would she mind flaming well speak to the doctor at some point through the day and say I really would like a print out. Her reply sorry we don't take request over the phone. By now smoke is coming out of my ears and said I have had enough and asked what are you doing in your little box I KNOW you are not trained but insist you speak to someone who was trained and that it was now a week or more of me going to the surgery twice and three phone calls and I don't normally play my sympathy card but told her that as I was a wheelchair user it was downright annoying as it takes a lot of effort to get down to the surgery.
6 lo and behold I got a phone call WOW only to be told my t3 is 1.8 and is normal. I certainly am NOT happy. I said that I'd asked for the full report and was told "why "I just told you they are normal. GRRRRRR
I seriously need to calm down before I make an appointment. What is it with doctors and thyroid.lol
Sorry for the rant
