Welcome to the forum Dons.

Hopefully others who have been in a similar position will let you know what happened to them soon but our cancer nurses are just a phone call away on 0808 800 4040 if you'd like to discuss this with them. Their lines are open Monday - Friday between 9a.m - 5p.m. Or if it's easier, you can make a new post about this in their area of the forum just here.

I hope you don't have to wait too long for the results Dons.

Kind regards,
