I’m posting because I just had a voicemail from the GPs receptionist. They tried to call this morning, but I was busy and didn’t get to my phone until 5pm today. Msg was:
‘…we need you to come back and get rpt bloods today’.
I called them back at 5ish when I got the voicemail. Rpt bloods now booked for tomorrow at 12.15. The initial bloods were taken on Monday at 9am, after a particularly sweaty night’s sleep, so I may have been a little dehydrated.
My U&Es are ‘…very high’, according to the receptionist, although she couldn’t give me more details re. the levels. She’s very thoughtful, and tried to reassure me, but I don’t like getting msgs requesting I ‘…come back today’.
I’m now really stressed. Worried about all sorts. Mind in overload. Surely, a little dehydration doesn’t cause a ‘very high/come back today’ sort of response?
I had cancer (3b/lymph node micromets) in 2019. I’m on HRT, but menopause symptoms have been hard to get on top of, e.g., night sweats ++.
I’m very fatigued atm, but have always struggled w/ energy - even before cancer. I don’t have any other symptoms - no discharge, no UTIs, or continence issues, no back pain. Aside from some fatigue/menopause issues, I feel fine.
As I mentioned at the start of the msg, I’m just a bit stressed as to why the GP would request I come back today. I’ll find out more tomorrow, but in the meantime I just needed to get share.
Thank you for reading.
.Objectively, I think I’m just feeling a little vulnerable and jumping to worst case scenario…but if you have any thoughts about this situation, please let me know.
