Hamslice  you got to go to your vamc  for blood work/test?

I need to see my va urologist pretty bad  but my pcp WON'T put in for a referral she said since the covid -19 no appointments are made   if I have an emergency  go to the E.R..  duh  so in case I have prostate cancer go to the ER humm ok I never knew that   duh!!!

I been doing the VVC Appointments with my MH Dr's and therapist now for the last 2 months...no problem there actually I like it better than being there in person...no hassle getting up at 5:00am  to head out to my VAMC Appointments  for a while at least...

but I am ready for this coronavirus crap to head out to the sea and disappear   so tired of social distancing  I've washed my hands so much  I may can win the pretties hands in America contest.  😛

Just had a phone appointment with my VA allergists.  I haven't had my allergy shots since March and they don't know when the shot clinic and in person appointments will resume.  They are hoping for mid May.

Buck,

I was surprised myself.  I had received the option of attending my physical in person or VVC, and  chose VVC.  But no such option for the blood draw obviously.  So, I went.

I pulled into the clinic and thought they were closed.  No cars in the parking lot.  Went to the door and a person met me at the door in protective garb and took my temp, ask if I had or had not a bunch of stuff.  Let me in.

I was the only patient in the whole place.  They took my blood and ushered me out the door.

LOL,

Hamslice

The bad news is my blood came back and my glucose is 118.  She's going to yell at me again!

Hamslice Thanks for the posting. First I have heard where a veteran physically allowed to  VAMC for an exam/procedure. And, work on that glucose number, man. Do what you gotta do!

I went a couple of weeks ago for two stress tests. Then today, I had a video call with the cardiologist.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
