Default Medicals Done and Dusted!!

Blimey, well we weren't expecting that! We had our medicals today in Altrincham and then X rays in Manchester. Myself and husband had the same MALE doctor whom we saw seperately. My husband was in there 15 mins and then I was in there about the same.

We had to do a urine sample, had a blood test, blood pressure, checked stomach and listened to our hearts. My husband had to drop his pants for a check. We then were asked about 20 questions, like if we'd had depression, any op's, diabetes, on medication, heart problems, tb, pregnant, breathing probs the usual. Height and Weight and that was it. No breast examination, no check on smear tests, no eye or ear test. We thought we were going to get a bit of a grilling but it was fine, pretty lax if we were to be honest. The doc told us we were fine and as long as the blood and xrays came back ok we wouldn't have a problems medical wise. It cost £150 each for the medicals and £60 each for the Xrays.

Was told blood results should take about 2 weeks to arrive so hope to hear back re out passport requests pretty soon. YEY YEY

So if any of you have your medicals coming up, don't panic they are really nice at the surgery and the xray place.

Thanks everyone for all your help prior to our medicals. Your advice was most helpful. Just hope we don't have to wait to long for the final stage.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE. X VIMTO CARR

yay - glad it went ok for you the OH - tell I would loved to have seen his face when he did the old "cough" thing lol but dont tell him I said that !

All that Canada are bothered about is that you dont bring diseases into the country and then any existing medical problems which are going to cost the country.

BTW peeps if you think that my comments are a little rude - it's ok they used to work for me and a friend so I do know them lol
