We have a great family doctor. However, he doesn't seem to set up follow-up appointments and hasn't scheduled urine test for over 1 1/2 years (another doctor did that), nor a blood test since last November and cholestrol test was done a year ago when he put my 88 year old husband on medication for high cholestrol (presumably due to CKD stage 3). Bill is suffering from extreme fatigue and cronic pain in the back and we are considering calling to see if there is anything that can help. Don't know if I should also ask if he be given the blood/urine tests before asking for an appointment. Bill keeps wanting to order energy and pain OTC meds he sees advertised on TV, which I think is a very bad idea. Bill is also getting very low BP readings when he takes a shower (lukewarm, using a hand-held and sitting on a bench). It goes back to normal in an hour or so (on BP medication for decades).
