Hello Frantic,


So sorry you are having such a worrying time right now. There’s no point me telling you to try not to worry, as I know you won’t be able to help it. However, a call back for more tests MIGHT mean just an unclear result and they want to check it. If on the other hand they have found something suspicious and want to confirm it, you have come to the right place for support.


Sending you hugs and best wishes. Please come back and let us know how you got on.
