Afraid to call for test results
« on: August 27, 2014, 04:28:21 PM »
So I'm waiting for the results of a thyroid ultrasound that I had on Monday afternoon.  I have had my cell phone glued to my side since then...no call.  Today I come home after work and my doctor's office # appears on my caller ID, but NO message.  Again, I have had my cell phone attached to me all day today. 

I know I should call but I'm terrified to pick up the phone, figuring that if it were that important they would have called my cell.  Of course, my HA is raging right now thinking that they didn't leave a message because the doctor wants to speak to me personally since it's so bad...

Help, please!  :dazed:

Well.... the ball is in your court. Take a deep breath, pick the phone and dial. It's better than letting your HA run wild.

Thanks, Fishmanpa...

Took a deep breath, dialed the phone...and they're closed!

I'm actually thinking that I'm not in dire straits after all...if something was terribly wrong I'm thinking they would have tracked me down via my cell??!

Ugh..

My doc doesn't leave messages either. Always asks to call back.

That's my thought as well. If it were serious, they definitely would have tracked you down. I've had serious health issues and my doctor was sure to get a hold of me and/or leave a message to call if I didn't answer. Try again in the AM.
