Endlessly waiting

12 Oct 2017 11:14

Well waiting for biopsy results feels endles!. You want to hear but on the other hand are dreading to. I had a biopsy two weeks ago Monday and even though the doctor put urgent on it due to my going on holiday early next week still not heard. I phoned the hospital yesterday and her secretary said the results should be back and she would chase her to write a letter! Not looking forward to our holiday anymore, only going as we'd end up paying if we cancelled so late in the day. The feeling of dread is like a heavy weight in my chest, think I am feeling worse as ache under my arms which I fear is my Lypmh nodes, my husband says I am jumping the gun I don't know I have anything yet but I know a small growth, which at first I thought was piles until I looked, is not normal,something google (and I know I shouldn't have searched) has made all to clear. Since my fist visit to sexual clinic as couldn't get a GP's appointment to Gyny appointment and biopsy has been a month, a month of worry been good days when busy and mind taken off of it but as I near the result not coping very well.

Hi, I was referred for an emergency appointment after finding a lump in my breast by the gp. This appointment took 7 weeks as they are so busy! 

I had a biopsy done the same day... It's now been nearly 4 weeks and still no results Sad 

It's tearing me apart!! 

I called after 2 weeks and 4 days and was told that they are rushed of there feet (which I totally understand, they were so busy when I was up there bless them) and that I would receive either a phone call or a letter in the post within the next week, it's now been nearly 4 weeks since I had the biopsy done and still nothing Sad 

Hope you hear some good news, sooner rather than later

Gosh what an horrendous wait, are you going to chase it up again?  You must be almost going out of your mind. I hope them not rushing to contact you means it is nothing serious. Good luck.
