I had a CT colonoscopy on the 21st December at the local hospital. While I was there the nurse said the results would be back in 2 weeks, which given Christmas and New Year I thought unlikely. Today, as I haven't heard anything I rang and spoke to the consultants secretary. As I was referred for the procedure by the nurse practitioner of the anemia clinic the scans have gone back to her. She is off sick and although she may be back next week there is no guarantee. The secretary said, oh they will be sat on her desk until she gets back. So it look likes another wait of about two weeks.
I am finding the waiting incredibly difficult and the thought of another two weeks seems intolerable. So I suppose what I'm asking is can I request that some one else actually gets the scans off her desk and looks at them or do I just resign myself to waiting?
