I did mention to the GP, that this is what I was a little concerned about, but she did say she did not think it was a DVT. I also said, "Correct me if I am wrong, but I was under the impression that you had to have a scan to determine whether you had a DVT. ( I know this, as my husband had one 2 years ago after a fall) but she said she was 95% sure it was not one. I am not a doctor, and I do not want to be seen as going against her advice, but I am getting worried, and my mother is getting extremely "down"
That is fine. I shall certainly do that when I go to visit my mother tomorrow . Thank you very much for your advice. it is greatly appreciated, as I did not know what to do, but was just not confident in the GP's diagnosis. thanks again, and I shall leave feedback for you, kind regards ***** *****
I shall. Thanks once again, Helen.
THANK YOU SO MUCH DR CHIP. I CALLED DOCTOR TODAY, ( ANOTHER DOCTOR IN THE PRACTICE) AND HE CAME OUT. SENT MY MOTHER TO HOSPITAL TO GET CHECKED, SHE WAS GIVEN A BLOOD TEST, AND IT WAS FOUND SHE HAS A DVT. SHE IS BEING KEPT IN HOSPITAL TODAY, AND HAS HAD INJECTION IN STOMACH, BUT BEING KEPT IN UNTIL AT LEAST TOMORROW, UNTIL THEY DO A ULTRA SOUND SCAN, TO DETERMINE WHERE THE CLOT ACTUALLY IS IN HER BODY. THANKS SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR ADVICE, IT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. I HAVE LEFT EXCELLENT FEEDBACK FOR YOU, BUT I KEEP GETTING EMAILS ASKING ME TO RATE YOU, BUT I HAVE ALREADY DONE THIS? REGARDS HELEN.
Thanks so much. I was very concerned about that myself. I agree, that 95% is not 100%, and if there is a 5% doubt, then it should be checked out. I just needed confirmation, and a little more advice. Thanks so much once again, kind regards Helen. p.s. can you tell me how I go about getting these ratings emails stoppped? lol
I most certainly will, thanks again, Helen.
