After a partial thyroidectomy on Monday I have been requested to get bloods redone on 14th August so 2 weeks after the operation. As consultant had only selected TSH and T4 I asked if, as my insurance company were paying I could have more tests done.
I emailed the consultant and he said that I should feel free to tick any boxes I want to on the blood test form. He didn't seem to know how I would go about getting the ones that are not showing on the blood form and said they might be specialised ones that an endocrinologist would order. I'm attaching a copy of the blood test form so perhaps you can tell me what, other than the TPOAb test, I could select. Can I ask for a free T3 and or rt3 rt4 to be added to the test if not showing up on the form?
Thanks for your help
