Re: What do you think???
It sounds as though her Chest CT scans and Chest x-rays came back negative and they ordered the Bronchoscopy to try to find the source of your mom's symptoms? Were biopsies taken at the time of the Bronchoscopy? If so, then the reason your mom is going back, is for biopsy results. It's difficult to say whether or not the doctor found anything abnormal but yes, they normall do tell you the findings at the time of the procedure. Even if he isn't sure, he would tell her what he "thinks" might be the problem and then perhaps ask her to return to his office in a week for a treatment plan or for further testing. He might be stumped at this point altogether and want to discuss your mom's case and findings with another doctor and get advice as to where to go from here. Did you go with her for this procedure? It's always suggested that you take someone along with you for any procedure so that person can be a second set of ears since patients are normally so nervous that they can't remember what the doctor told them.
