I've posted on here before about how I've been struggling with the wait for my biopsy results but after I've read and been spurred on by a few recent posts (and more specifcially seen how Lola has been so on the ball with calling up and pestering them until the consultant called her back!) I decided that after waiting five weeks for my biopsy results I would try calling the hospital to see if they were back in.
Well, I just spoke with the receptionist who first of all said, "well your biopsies were only taken 5 weeks ago and it's an 8 week wait" (8 WEEKS?! What?!) and I tried to explain to her that the doctor had said 4 to 6 weeks, she kept saying the 8 weeks was the standard. I asked politely if she would mind looking anyway, and she replied "the results are with the consultant at the moment, she'll probably need another three weeks to write them up and get them to you. You'll just have to wait."
Another three weeks? What, is she writing a frigging novel?! :( Why so damn long????
I'm obviously hoping that this means the results aren't requiring urgent attention, but STILL, I'm really really upset with the way I've been treated for the past 6 months.. I feel like a really strongly worded letter needs writing to the hospital director!! :( It's so rubbish to have to go through all this anyway, without having to deal with people who, quite simply, DO NOT CARE.
Anybody else felt like this? xx
