Together we will beat cancer


Blood results, your experience

Hi, I had to tick one category but reading through the options, I could have chosen 3

My main question is...had my bloods taken yesterday, the results are pending. 

I know how labs work, the GP role and how they get back to you but I'm extremely anxious about waiting.

What is your experience of timescales and how you were informed 

My back is breaking with stress as I am juggling this. My mums cancer treatment which after many calls today due to mum being passed out from one consultant and back again, treatment starts on 26th. Also have hubby grieving for his dad and arrange and juggle a funeral 500 miles away.. All before going back to work, sorry for the rant but my anxiety is through the roof and each day is difficult

Hi Beatrice, 

I'm sorry to read about everything that is going on at the moment. This must be very difficult but I hope the discussion you're having with our cancer nurses is helping.

I can see from that discussion you've got results back now. I know they may not have been what you were hoping for but hopefully the tests you've been referred for will show you're not dealing with anything sinister.

Wishing you all the best for the 1st July Beatrice.

Kind regards,
