Lab work and doctor's visits

Posted by J on Monday, October 25, 2010. Filed under: ,

I don't think I posted about this before but about a month ago I requested some lab work and lazied around until last Thrusday to actually go get it done. The doctor, it turns out, had ordered 6 tests when I had only requested two. It was a lot of vials!

Anyway I got my results today thanks to digital medical records and everything looks fine except that my clotting rate is slightly too slow. Seriously missed "normal" by .02 which is an indication that my vitamin K is low, which I expected due to the fact that my legs were covered in very large scary looking bruises. So there's that. I go to my primary doctor next week, I'm not sure if he's going to do anything about that right now or just recheck me in a couple of months. I also get to visit the GI next week as well, I'm going to swallow my pride and ask for more samples of my medication if she intends me to stay on it. $118 a month is a lot for meds I may have to be on for the rest of my life!
