My next Oncology Outpatients was on the 10th March and was a phone call; it was a follow up following my Lutetium Treatment on 19th February.
I thought it a good idea to have a blood test done locally by the GP so we had an up to date blood test for the outpatients appointment.
So I contacted the GP and booked a blood test, it was slightly more difficult than they had been previously and there was a little confusion as to whether the surgery was still doing blood test for the Clinically Vulnerable. But eventually it was all sorted and I was booked in for Monday 8th March.
Monday came and I turned up for my appointment, I was met at the door by a receptionist and hardly had time to sit down before the doctor came for me. I had not seen this doctor before, but she was very good and got to the vein first time and before I knew it I was on my way home.
She said they normally get results in a day or two!
Wednesday came and it was nearly time for my Outpatients Appointment.
I checked online and there were no results, ah well it was a good idea!
The Outpatients call was a little anti climatic in that the doctor, who I did not know, just seemed to be familiarising himself with my case, he did ask how I was and I told him of my experience following on from the Lutetium Treatment.
I also asked about my spinal brace again and he said he would look into it although I do not think there are many options, but it is worth asking.
At the end of the call it was agreed that I would have another call in a couple of weeks and that is now scheduled for 24th March and will hopefully focus more on my next treatment.
Hopefully we will have the blood test results back by then!
