I have I my first visit to an NHS Endo mid-October, and I'm wondering if I should ask my surgery to do up-to-date thyroid blood tests before I go - the last ones were taken 3 months ago.
What I want to avoid is him/her saying they need to take bloods on my first visit and then me having to wait weeks again for another appointment to discuss. Does this sound like a reasonable plan or is he/she going want to do their own tests anyway?
I'm pretty sure that they won't provide the T3 I believe I need, although I will put up a case for it. However, just don't want to string it out for any longer than necessary as I feel shocking at present and will self-medicate.
Would be interested in anyone's experience of the first appointment and what happened.
