My next Lutetium Treatment is scheduled for the 5th of June and is due to take place at the London Clinic.
This afternoon I have had a phone call from one of the radiology team to tell me that they have updated their Therapy Pathway and that I needed to go into isolation for 14 days prior to the treatment!
Fortunately I am already in isolation and so this should be no big issue.
She said that I would need to have a Covid 19 test done 48 hours prior to treatment.
Which again shouldn’t really be a problem!
She then asked about when my last blood test was and when the next one would be. Luckily I had just been sorting this out (see my post ‘A Right Palaver‘).
And so I told her.
She said she would write to my Oncology Consultants and ask them to write to my GP to ask them to do the Covid test.
This all sounds simple but you can see where this is going!
She said she would copy me in on the email to the consultants so I would be kept in the loop.
She then recapped what I needed to do.
I then asked a question and as the words came out of my mouth I was regretting it.
I said that I could stay in isolation but would need to go out for the Covid test.
There was silence!
I could hear the brain whirring as this was worked out! Clearly a new problem had been presented.
And so she uttered those words.
‘I will call you back!’
And so now I wait to hear how the GP’s Surgery will handle the Covid test request when they get it and I wait to hear how The London Clinic think Covid testing can be done while staying isolated?
Watch this space!
