X Ray results

OSCAR1OSCAR1 Member Posts: 37 Connected
Hi all went to see the nurse last week  Wednesday for yearly check up because I have ipf I told her that over christmas I had a cold and was coughing up blood so she arranged I went for an x Ray that day I went they told me to contact my g.p. In a week for results I called in yesterday still not got them but I, m in with doc tomorrow for something else so I, m hoping my results are back and that it's good news because in the back of my mind I, m thinking if anything had progressed or worse surely the hospital would of rang my g.p. for my  g.p. to contact me...

    Sorry to hear you experienced this @OSCAR1 I know it can be daunting get test results. In my experience, after a test I've only been contacted if something was wrong. Half the time they never contact when results come back clear.

    Not being called by doctors even when they say they will seems to be becoming the norm now. I was supposed to have an X-ray after being on antibiotics 4 times in the last 2 months but cannot arrange transport due to hospital transport not being available for GP referrals, only hospital referrals. I did have an X-ray before Xmas but it was inconclusive so they sent me home on antibiotics and aspirin treating both a possible chest infection and possible heart attack, evidently they couldn't tell the difference and wanted the bed.

    I had an x-ray 3 weeks ago and was told twice that the result hadn't come through to the surgery. Yesterday at a separate hospital appointment I enquired yet again and was told everything was all clear, but in the year 2020 when communication electronically is instant worldwide why do they still use snail mail?

    Best wishes.

    Hi Topkitten, sorry to hear you`ve not been so good. I thought whoever did a referral had to pay for transport! Doesn't make sense, does it? And doesn't a blood test, looking for a certain enzyme, tell if you`ve had a heart attack?

    Hope things improve for you.
