    pap smear

    I had a pap smear done almost 3 weeks ago and still have not heard back form the lab? Do i assume everything is ok or should I call and see what is going on?

    I bet you can assume that everything is ok, but I would call them anyway. The results should be in by now.

    Definately call. Usually the results take 2 weeks to get back and if they are good results, you would receive a post card from your Dr.'s office stating so, if they were bad results, they would have called you to set up a followup appt.

    Good luck! I just had this done recently too.. the fun things we go through, huh?

    My doctor once told me: "No news is not good news, it's just NO news." Always call for results on ANYTHING. You wouldn't believe the turnover in medical office staffing and a lot of these folks are very young and inexperienced.

    My doctor always says "if we haven't called you in 2 weeks you call us."
