On visiting my doctor with multiple things to ask, but on ringing up originally I said to secretary I needed a extension on my sick note-been off since January with Oestioarthritis of my left knee. And other problems.. Tinnitus TMD Fibro, Went in with my note as I have brain fog- I felt she looked at that list and just could nt wait for me to go.. She said how's anxiety? Then I felt she did nt look or listen. I said about my ringing in ears worsening, quickly she got up flashed a light inside them said they were clear?? then quickly after I said I'm sure some times I stop breathing but wake up gasping? she then suggested to do all bloods,she printed off the sick note, and said to see reception for blood appointment,
I did so and was given a lovely young trainee medical nurse, who was very obliging she did blood the GP had requested, TSH, vitamins, liver kidney etc but not The full thyroid panel so I asked her can you request this for me, She went to ask someone else as she was a trainee as I said. All was or seemed to be good.who ever she spoke to must have said yes. by the Friday I recieved a letter asking me into the surgery and I won't lie I thought oh god they ve found something. Nothing else was explained. I ran the secretary and she said nothing just made an appointment with Some head nurse practitioner called Tracy, I was nervous but when I got in I was furious, she told me the young nurse had put the blood samples in the wrong bottles, she seemed to pass the buck. What I thought was strange was this Tracy only took one sample for glucose and said its all we need as your bloods had only been done in the March. Do they throw away blood if in wrong bottles or what should they have done, I did ask about the full tsh panel done again and she said about it being in range last time, but I was trying to say it was my horrible Symtoms I'm living with that was the biggest problem, she said take it up with the management., I know it's not the trainee or this Nurse Tracey's fault. I know I must feel poorly when I never kicked off, truth is I need to really complain after thinking about it. I think I was in shock.
Anyway I have just rang for the results from her test and the secretary said all clear no problem- I asked what about my urine and again she said all was fine, I then asked for appointment to speak with GP and was told ring on Friday, so I asked for a copy of the blood s done and urine, she said who for I said me and she told me it wouldn't be possible. I asked why and she said if it's not for a consultant then they don't do it.. This can't be the normal, am I allowed a print out or not.. 🌺🌺 sorry it's lengthily 🌺
