"cancer results"

About: Lincoln County Hospital

already had blood tests plus2 x ultrasound plus CTI scan as inpatient then sent to Louth for Endoscopy and again for Colonoscopy and expected this visit to confirm results but because I was seeing a new doctor she effectively wanted to start again!

I was asked to go to my GP and arrange blood samples whilst a future date ? would be made at Lincoln for an MRI scan.........so no results and a wasted 96 mile round trip
