results from blood tests

Last Tuesday morning I had a blood test. They were after something specific, and because of this couldn't use a tourniquet to help get the blood out. It took the phlebotomist, three goes before she could get any blood.
This afternoon I went to see the doctor about the results. I have something wrong with my parathyroid gland, and I do not have enough calcium in my blood. I have been given bumph to read, and some great big "donkey pills" to take...luckily they are suck or chew, and not too revolting. I have to return for another blood test in 6 weeks, and then return to see doctor, to see where we go from there. The chest pain problem has been put on a back burner until this is sorted out.
