I had a physical at my doctors office a couple of weeks ago. My first in a few years! My main doctor is off on medical leave – I’m not sure what’s wrong with her, so I saw her replacement for the first time when I went in for my physical. Not the ideal time to meet a new doctor in my opinion. LOL
Everything seemed to go well with my physical and I liked the new replacement doctor. My husband also saw her as well and liked her too.
Then, last week I got a call. I guess my Cholesterol is off. So I have to go back to see the doctor soon and find out if I need to start treatment for high cholesterol or perhaps low cholesterol. Mine is probably a little high – it has been occasionally in the past, but I mentioned low cholesterol because that’s my husbands problem. His low or good Cholesterol levels are too low and that can be as bad as having high cholesterol too.
I’m being a bad patient though. Before I left the doctors office she armed with with a few requisitions for tests I need to get done before I see her again ie mammogram, pelvic ultrasound (I have endo) and a thyroid ultrasound and I haven’t even booked those appointments yet! ARgh … I’d better get to work on those.
When you go to see your family doctor do you end up with a bunch of follow up tests that you have to do too? I hate it, but I have a tumor in my thyroid and I’m supposed to have an ultrasound and biopsy every 6 months and like I said, I hadn’t had a real physical with my regular doctor for a few years (probably because she saw me so often she didn’t think I need it, duh) so the other tests are important add ons.
