Results not back

Was just about to set off yesterday to the hospital for the results of my snlb and lumpectomy. Got a call to cancel the appointment as the results had not come back. It is so stressful waiting i dont know how to cope with it.
They said they would book me in for next Wednesday but no guarantee the results will be back. It is mental torture


So sorry to hear that Jolow especially when you’ve prepared yourself for the appointment which is stressful in itself.

I’ve been told that due to a shortage of lab staff my results will take 5-6 weeks instead of the usual 3. My surgery was on 23 October. The waiting is really hard. At least once we know what we’re facing we can begin to process it.

Hoping that your results will be back next week. x

Hi. I am so sorry to hear you’re having to wait longer than expected. That is just so so hard. It is honestly the hardest part of the whole thing, in my opinion.
I’m sorry not to be able to make anything easier with my words, I just wanted to send you all the best wishes and I hope hope the time flies by and you can soon be the other side of those results. You will amaze yourself with your strength. Sending you lots of love xx

I feel for you I really do. I went for my post op results yesterday after having to wait 4 weeks to be told it’s in the two nodes they took out and so I have to go back in two weeks to have them all removed and wait another 4 weeks for those results. I was told the results are taking longer due to the shortage of lab staff but that doesn’t help us going through this. I do hope you get your results back next week and they are good news for you. Sending hugs :hugs::hugs:

Hi @Jolow

I am so sorry to hear you’re going through such a stressful time waiting.

Please know that our nurses are here if you need to talk things through 0808 800 6000.

We’re thinking of you and hoping you get some certainty soon.

Sending our warmest,

I am in that position now. Worse still, it is now twice that I have had the results appointment cancelled on the day of the appointment. :frowning:
If the results are back for my next appointment, it will be 5 weeks since the operation.

I do hope that Jolow eventually had good news and is making good progress.
