The Waiting is the Hardest Part!

I thought it was bad waiting for EGD and biopsy.  

It's worse waiting for results.

I had the procedures done Friday, according to the patient portal, my results arrived Tuesday.  I have an appointment next Thursday for results follow up.

Normally, they post the results on the patient portal, the fact that they haven't posted them has a me a little concerned.  I would call but I asked them to send me hard copies of the results before they did the procedures and they said they would and I should have them Thursday or Friday of this week.  I feel like to call them will be overkill and a bit too impatient.  My mail arrives around 5:30, I have a feeling it won't be in the mail but it sure would be nice.

I'm not afraid of anything the EGD or biopsies say, I'm worried because she found nodules on my cecum that she biopsied and I'm afraid there's a problem with those biopsies which is why she doesn't have my results posted.

I agree... (((((hugs))))).  One thing that I've done to get in earlier to get results is to call in the morning and say I've got an appointment next week, but I'm wondering if you've had any cancellations before that.  It's gotten me from waiting 3 weeks to just a few days.  Just a thought...

Imagine my dread and excitement as I received a letter from gastroenterologist in the mail today!  The results of the biopsies of the nodules in my cecum were listed as no sign of cancer.  

The celiac biopsies weren't included in the letter.  Hopefully I will receive them tomorrow.  I will call Monday and ask about them if I don't receive them in the mail tomorrow.  

I was more concerned about the nodule biopsies, I'm so relieved.
