Customer Question
At my last physical...

At my last physical (last week). microscopic blood cells were found in my urine. I have no idea how this could happen. Any ideas?

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

My health is very good. No problems -- just a bit of arthritis ( I am 75) but I work out at the gym several times a week and can sew and knit with the best of them.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have had thyroid cancer (thyroidectomy), and two breast cancers which resulted in lumpectomies. No chemo, but radiation two years ago.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
