I don't know how to 'update' all who kindly commented and advised on my post regarding my blood results (TSH jumping) and ivf being cancelled, and then additional results from GP implying something else was wrong.
I just had a 'call back' from GP regarding my bloods. She couldn't wait to get off the phone. I would say she was on there for possibly a minute tops. She said "everything was fine". My kidney function was ....errrr and possibly I wasn't drinking enough water. I replied I drink a lot of water, and had done that morning as I didn't want to be told they couldn't find a vein. That has happened in the past. I was told I should 'fast' but not drink anything other than water.
She said my GGF levels and protein were due to 'alcohol' and I should cut down. I just laughed at her and said "I have Hashimoto's since last June". I haven't had any alcohol at all.
She didn't have a reply. I could just hear her tapping away on the keyboard, probably writing "Hashimotos' and 'Gluten intolerant" in my notes. None of these are new. I've had them a year and I would think they are all over my notes by now. Maybe I should buy her a 'highlighter pen'.
Enquiring on my TSH, she said "it's 4. You're fine, go back and tell your clinic you can start". I told her they needed it to be lower than 1 to start, and asked why it was 10.7 when the clinic tested the week before and jumped to 4 a week lated. She said "I don't have answers for these labs".
End conclusion/ advice from her: Cut out alcohol, which I haven't drunk in a year, come back in 3 weeks time to see if my bloods were a 'blip'. What a waste of time. She it completely useless. So angry. Now I can see why my poor mum got so frustrated after 2 years of visits and finally being told "opps you have stage 4 ovarian cancer, your life will never be the same again". Grrr so angry. If they don't know, why don't they make a referral to someone who does?
Sorry, a day off work with no pay to tell me to 'stop drinking' and it was poss a 'blip'.
