Hospital has sent me a few other tests associated with pre op radical prostatectomy: FBE (Full blood examination), UTE/creatanine (kidney function), ECG, msu (mid stream urine), crossmatch.
Seems to me that if I’m having these blood tests then they might as well get the most out of each sample.
The waiting room was full to brimming this time. Mainly older sick looking folk and with walking sticks and resolute expressions. We all held numbers. However, my number was called quite quickly even though they were there before me. When I pulled out my phone to take some photos, the pathologist revealed that she too had been on a cancer journey.
She took about 3 vials of blood for the other tests and we managed to get the CRP done at about 10:20am well aligned with the timing of the first one. I’ll be back tomorrow, Saturday for the next one.
The ECG was in another room. She shaved some spots from my hairy chest and wired me up. But nothing seemed to happen.
