How long for endometrial biopsy/

Just how long is the average wait to get back results on an endometrial biopsy?

Mine is a long story-but it culminates with this:

My father passed away Dec 22. My mom (54) thought she was finished with meno. She started bleeding, cramping, and clotting within about two weeks of my father's death. Now, she had a sono that showed thickening of her uterus and has not stopped bleeding. He family dr did biop in office 10 days ago, no word--even after repeated phone calls. Mom left at 6am this morning to go home to her mom who has congestive heart failure. I am going to her dr tomorrow to complain, but before I do that I want to be certain, or at least reasonably so, that her results should be in.

I can't believe that it would take this long to tell someone whether they have cancer or not!!!!!!!!!

Thanks from the House of Never Ending Sadness


PS: My own hysterectomy horror story is not over yet, but it is certainly overshadowed by the other things going on. I was supposed to schedule for bowel obstruction surgery, but put that off when I heard about my mom's. I wonder how many things we can deal with. I thought it couldn't get any worse, I guess I thought wrong!

My results took about 2 weeks to come back. In all fairness, it could be a problem at the lab. Also, when my biopsy did not show anything unusual, my Dr. called and asked me to schedule a D and C and that is how my uterine cancer was diagnosed.

With all the stress your mom has been through it is entirely possible that her hormones were thrown out of whack and that this is not abnormal bleeding for menopause. My Dr. told me when I had heavy bleeding that menopause is similar to puberty in that the hormones are raging. Stress can make them rage.

Please don't worry until you get the results, ok? This may not be cancer, but just the last hurrah of menopause for your mom. I have had friends not bleed for a year and think it was over and then they got one huge, heavy period, and then nothing for another year. Wait to see what the Dr. says. And remember...sometimes no news is good news. If this was really serious and cancer was found I bet you would have had a call from the Dr. by now asking your mom to come in soon.

I will keep you and your mom in my prayers. I am really sorry to hear about your dad. I lost my dad 7 years ago and I remember how stressful that first year was.

Wishing you both peace and good health.

HI STACIE,

FIRST OFF I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE YOU A BIG YOUR A
DARLING DAUGHTER.
I HAD THICKENING OF THE UTERINE LINING AND MY TESTS
DID NOT COME BACK FOR AWHILE.
I HAD A, D & C DONE AND 3 WEEKS LATER I GOT THE PATH
RESULTS.
THE THICKENING COULD BE ANYTHING SO DON'T WORRY TOO
MUCH.
IF IT DOES TURN OUT TO BE ENDOMETRIAL CANCER, THAT'S
O.K. TOO. WELL, IT'S NOT O.K. , BUT IT'S CUREABLE.
YOU SEE, ENDO CANCER IS ALL CONTAINED, AND VERY SLOW GROWING.
I'M SURE THE DOCTOR WILL LET YOUR MOM KNOW A.S.A.P.

TRY NOT TO WORRY TOO MUCH , ALL WILL BE FINE.
KEEP US POSTED DEAR. S

My uterine biopsy was done at the end of the day on Christmas Eve. I assume the labs were closed Christmas Day. By the 28th they were paging my doctor with the results. There was urgency because they did find cancer in my case. Not bad for an HMO huh?
I hope in your case no news is good news.
I just went through a very stressful time with my mother in the hospital which brought on very heavy bleeding and clotting also.
It does seem as if everything happens at once sometimes.
There will be brighter days ahead.
Good luck.
Hugs,
Seeshelley
