I called the doc this morning to find out the results of my labs. After playing phone tag, 2 hours of waiting, and getting dropped while being on hold, I finally talk to a nurse. They didn't have my results. She called the lab and got back to me about 5 minutes later (the first thing that was finally done in a timely manner!). And the results are...
They didn't test my HCG levels.
Yet again, I find myself saying WHAT?!?!?!? I don't know if there was a mix up in how the tests were ordered or if there was a communication break down. I specifically asked the lab tech if she was taking blood to do a beta test. Do people not know that is the slang term for a Beta HCG test?? The good news is that the lab is supposed to do the test now, with the blood they already took.
Also, my progesterone test isn't complete. Supposedly I will receive my results tomorrow when I go for the second round of needle poking. Unfortunately, the second test is on a Friday. Since I'm going in the morning I'm going to ask them to run the tests STAT so I can receive the results before the weekend. I think it's the least they can do after all they have put me through this week... Who wants to bet that the results still won't be in even if they run them STAT?
