    Ultrasound results wait time!!

    Hi all
    Had an upper abdo & pelvic scan on Monday morning - what is the wait time on this? I did ask they said 5 days or so BUT my Dr is not in this week (not sure when he will be back) whom ordered the scan so fearing they will leave it till he is back....

    Hi

    If there was something serious going on, you would have been contacted by now by someone at the practice you attend.

    Here the radiologist sends a CD the same day,depending on the time of your scan.
    Like the op said,if something was wrong you would know by now

    Here in NZ most blood tests come back the same or next day as all done online. Ultrasound can also come back the same/or next day if it's done Mon-Thurs. I guess we're dealing with far less people down here (nearly 5 million) and (Australia 25.3 million).

    I do agree, if there was anything serious going on your Dr would have been contacted quickly, withing the first week. Here in NZ it would be within the first day.

    ITs hard to as just called the surgery again and nothing has been received back as yet, so its probably not even been looked at yet, means anything could be wrong!

    Re: Ultrasound results wait time!!

    The problem with the UK (guys replying from other fast countries lol) is that it doesn't mean they've even looked at the results yet. I have had cancer, and my yearly screening results can take anything from 7 days to 5 weeks to come back ! Last year they were over 4 weeks, the year before 5 days (and I presumed the worst, but they were fine), the year before over 4 weeks..... Timescale of results is dependent on how busy the department is and the backlog of images they have to look at, any holidays in between etc. Delay doesn't mean good, and it doesn't mean bad, quick results doesn't mean good and doesn't mean bad - you get the idea. This of course doesn't help Neverending_story, and it makes it all the more painful whilst you are waiting, I know and many many others know the feeling too. All you can do is hang on in there and try to get on with things whilst putting it to the back of your mind. I would say if you had it on Monday morning, and they said '5 days or so' (that'll be working days) then I wouldn't expect to hear anything until next week.
