Hello everyone, I had my dexa scan last thursday, and was told it could take 3 weeks to get the results!! Is this normal? NHS GB. Can anyone tell me they got their results much earlier than that? Not knowing is worrying me. I still have a broken foot, and trying to get about on the icy paths is worrying me incase my bones are bad and I fall and break something else!

Re: DEXA Scan

I had a DEXA scan last summer and the technician doing the test told me it didn't look good (but wouldn't tell me numbers) and the report was at my doctor's office 2 days later.

Re: DEXA Scan

It took me just a few days to get my bad news. The technician doing the test must have known the results as she was doing the test, because she called in another tech to ask if she was doing something wrong because the numbers were so high.
