Re: how long does it take to get results of a colon polop

It took my mother a week to get the results of her polyp removal.

Is your doctor supposed to call you, or do you call him/her?

Whenever I have a test done, like CEA and such, I always call the Cancer Center instead of waiting for them to call me. I've found that you have to take control of your own health and ask loads of questions. I ask for a copy of all my lab and scan reports and keep them in a folder. I'm just paranoid I guess.

As for symptoms, I was anemic. Some people see blood in their stool. Some have pain, others blockages. I'm hoping your polyp is benign and you won't have to have anything further done.

Hope this helps a little bit, but I know waiting for reports can be very unsettling.

Good luck to you,

Barbara

My husband had nausea and increased number of bowel movements before he was diagnosed. as Barbara says, waiting for results is horrible.
