Re: Got the test results...still confused
No...I haven't heard...I've given up waiting on him. I think he's got issues....What I did do however is I had to take my son in for blood work. We have to go periodically to do this. I really like his doctor and I accept her advice. I showed her this new blood work result. She said that the immunoglobulins were low but not horribly low, and in her opinion it still warranted looking into to see why they were low. She kind of rolled her eyes as if to say "Oy" about the guy I went to see. She told me to go to Emory ( a very highly regarding hospital and medical university here in Atlanta) and get an academic doctor (her tone was one of "get a real doctor") to take a look and help me figure it out. So, that's what I've done. Unfortunately the appointment isn't until June. I'm on a waiting list for any cancelled appointments...hopefully one will come up soon. Not that I'm dying or anything, but not knowing is uncomfortable.
Just curious, what do people do when they their flares, feel like crud, but can't get in to see their doctors for months?? Just go to their regular GP or what?
Just help me calm my mind a bit....am I being overly concerned about this? Was the "oh there's nothing to be done" comment appropriate? or am I right in thinking if this is what I've got then I've got to take some actions....appointments, looking into meds, etc??
If I could just get clear on that, I might feel slightly better that at least I'm investigating it......
