First Blood Test

Had my first blood test today to test for Acromegaly. The door of the medical centre was locked, so I had to knock until somebody opened up. My doctor had told me yesterday that the earlier I could get there the better as my “Insulin-like Growth Factor” first thing in the morning would be able to tell him more than later on in the day.

The nurse took some blood, she was very quick and it was quite painless. I was told I’d get my results in five working days. I then went off to work.
