| | Biopsy - is this normal
My husband went in for a colonoscopy and the "throat scope". After the procedure they informed us that they removed numerous samples for biopsy and to follow up with our family doctor in 10-14 days.
We saw our doctor 15 days later and he had no results at all, the surgeon also had no results. Doctor said to check with office in 3 days as they should be there by then, still nothing. The nurse informed us that sometimes they send them to another specialist/lab for further testing/ diagnosis. And she flagged his file so that we can get an answer no matter what.
We have been stressed out with worry as expected, as this was also not a routine check - he has a lot of pain, bowel changes and anywhere from streaks to massive bleeding.
It has now been 21 days and still no word - is it normal for biopsies to take this long?
