On the day of my op I was told the results (testing for cancer) would be phoned to me within 7-10 days.
After 12 days I phoned up and was put through to the consultant's secretary. I asked if they had the results and she said she would phone back asap. 1/2 later received phone call, they had the results but as the consultant wasn't there (Thursday) for today and tomorrow it would be Monday before they could ring me.
I now have to wait an additional 4 days to see if I need more surgery/chemo etc or have the all clear.
I find I've gone from stressed over the results, to very annoyed that only one person can read my results, even though I was operated on by another consultant, so there's clearly more than 1 person to feed back my results.
