Getting a doctors note issued three days later?


Q: I have been feeling very run down and tired recently, i have had the symptoms of a common cold as well (sore throat, runny nose, constant cough). I took two days off school last week to try and recover. That was Thursday and Friday, It is now Sunday. I have just recieved an email from my school stating that i will need a medical certificate for those 2 days to show that i have been legitimately sick. I already have a previous doctors appointment booked for Tuesday. My medical centre is closed on sundays, am i able to go to my doctor on tuesday and let her know what has happened. Will she be able to certify why i have been away, even though it has been 3 days? Please help! I'm very confused and can fail my course if i dont sort it out. Thankyou
