Hi had a ct scan today afterallready  having an ultrasound and a camera in bladder. Which were clear except irritations in bladder due to bad infections he said. Nothing was said to me about the results I asked the receptionist she said had go back to the doctor who sent me then would get a letter. Well I’m just wondering if there was anything bad would they get me back any quicker or is it a waiting game whatever it’s so hard trying to get on and be normal when in a flash life could be all changed. Any advice be appreciated thank you

Well we had a CT scan on the Tuesday and by Monday we were called into our surgery, it was cancer.  So the answer is yes they will let you know as soon as possible if you need further investigations.  Hope all goes well for you.  Carol

It is just a waiting game - good or bad results take the same length of time - but those times vary from one hospital to another. 

My results were bad but I waited just as long this time as I did a few years ago when I had a cancer scare which turned out to be a false alarm. 


Good luck!

The other members of the community have given you some  good replies. 

So far, the results of the other tests you have had have been encouraging, so focus on this if you can for now.  In a few days, if you contact the secretary of the doctor that ordered the tests ,they should be able to tell you if they have come back and will be able to sort out an appointment for you to get the results. 

Take care
