I hand my three different samples of my stool to the technician and Dr. G’s instruction for the many blood samples.
Altogether, there were only 7 blood samples taken. Actually, I was quite surprised … being that I haven’t done this since the 1980’s .. giving blood that is. There really was only one needle put into my veins, and 7 little containers popping on and off of it ..
It was over in about 30 seconds.
She said it should take a week to get all of the proper tests prepared and return them to Dr. G., so I phoned back the clinic and made an appointment for April 11, 2005.
I was a little concerned, that I took the blood tests about 10am that day. I didn’t stop eating until about 10pm the previous night. I was supposed to stop eating around 6pm and not even drink any water.
