Waiting on breast biopsy results

Hi all

well I didn't get a call back on Friday but now I'm not sure if I've miss understood. He definitely said he would

discuss my results Friday at MDT and look at getting me back Monday or Tuesday next week maybe he didn't say I would get a call Friday. I know he said we are in a good position as today is Monday so your results should be back by Friday

 

I guess no news is good news !!

Must be so frustrating thinking you were going to get an answer then hearing nothing. I hope you hear something early this week.

 

im still waiting too. Will be 2 weeks tomorrow. They told me if I don't hear within 2 weeks that means they don't need to see me again! So I guess no news is good news?!

No. I called on Thursday. They said if they needed to see me again I would hear within 2 weeks otherwise the results would be sent through th post in 6-8 weeks. It will be 2 weeks since my biopsy tomorrow so I assume if I don't hear anything then I have nothing to worry about.  Would much prefer to have confirmation of that though! Xx

Well yes some sort of confirmation before 6-8 weeks is what you should be getting too!! 
have you thought about ringing after the two weeks and asking?

If I don't hear this week I will call. At least if they say my results are there and I haven't heard anything I can stop stressing about it!

I called the hospital this morning. They said that results have been delayed coming back. If I haven't heard anything by this time next week to call back.  So much for if I don't hear after 2 weeks it's biting to worry about! X

Took just over 2 weeks from seeing my gp to going to the appointment at the hospital. Are you waiting for an appointment?

It is! I know the outcome will be whatever it is and nothing can change that. Just being in limbo and not knowing is hard! Fingers crossed we both hear soon xx
