I was approved through the lyme patient assistance program and they sent me a check 2 days ago. I asked them what do I do next and they said get a requisition form from my doctor then go and have the specimen collected - that was done today. The problem is that I'm reading that fedex has special requirements to ship the blood. Several weeks ago I did some IgG food testing and Genova sent me a test kit with package and a Styrofoam container. Was igenex suppose to send me a test kit and why did no one tell me about this? My dr's office printed out the collection instructions for the hospital and I took those with me. It has to be mailed no later than Tuesday..... What do I do? My dr's office also sent me a fedex account number to cover the shipping; I assume this is their account or igenex's? The Genova kit had a prepaid overnight waybill; I don't even know by what service I'm suppose to ship it, ground, air, etc.
