Anxious about son's 18 month blood results
« on: July 14, 2010, 10:37:09 am »
I am glad to be here, how are you ladies?

My son, now 23 months old had his test in March when he was 19 months. Usually the doc would ring (at 6 mo, 12 mo) to say all was well, just Mum's antibodies still detected. In March there was another Doc. She said the old Doc would ring as usual, but she didnt, until today. Well her secretary booked me for an app to see her next week Tues, no results about March tests. I rang about three times before and failed to speak to Doc. I hate it when they leave you hanging, do you think its something bad; a + results? Any Mums had similar experiences. I havent been worried before until today, thought perhaps silence means good news.

Thanks for reading.

That sounds like a breakdown in communication between the old doc and the new doc to me.  Maybe the old doc thought the new doc had already called or something.  Hope all is well with your son.

I don't think there is anything to worry. Docs are well known for being rubbish in communication at times.  If the last two results were fine that a good indication to say that all will be well again.

I have been there, my son is now nine.
