After the numerous bloodwork and chest cat scan, I was told that I could not leave until the doctor read the results.
Tech: OK, I’m going to remove your IV.
Tech: How long have you been feeling sick?
Me: A few weeks I think.
Tech: Did you have any specific symptoms?
Me: Just a heaviness in my chest; hard to breathe.
Tech: You can carefully sit up and wait in the waiting room until the doctor says you can go.
Me: Says I can go? What do you mean?
Tech: We can’t send you home until we’re sure you don’t have a blood clot.
