How long to get pathology results, usually...

I had a biopsy taken of a large cyst removed from my left ovary last Monday and of some blood tinged fluid in my abdomen. It has been 9 days, how long does it usually take...I am getting rather anxious....just curious how long it took for others to get their results...

Call your Doctor and ask if the report is in yet. Mine have taken a week both times - but once I waited longer and it turned out they were there and had been lost in the shuffle of Dr office busyness.
I am putting off calling about another biopsy right now. (Dr is gone but asked me to call.) I don't know why I'm putting it off - but I am.
And just so you know - waiting is by far the worst part of this whole crazy process.
I think I'll call now... why don't you do the same.

biopsy results

Mine took 6 days and the office staff said that was about standard. I'd call if it has been nine days and you live in the US. (I understand that it takes longer in Canada.)

Bite the bullet, take a deep breath, and call. Waiting is worse than knowing!

patho results

I want to say it took between 7 and 10 days for mine to come back both times. If you are getting antsy, call your doc's office to see if they have results, after all, that's what you're paying for! Best of luck...

The Bio on my Uterus took 6 days and the 2 samples taken from the cervix took 2 days but they saw the cancer during the colpo and rushed it.

Thank you to all that replied...
I had gone to the doc Monday day night for some bleeding that I was it turned out, they punctured my cervix while clamping it in place during my laparoscopy...lucky me... They didn't have the results when I went it, so I was hesitant to call...I have this thing about being a bug- even though they are getting payed for doing their job....
Anyway, you all pumped me up enough to just go ahead and call...and, boy, am I glad that I did...the results were benign...apparently, I'm having recurring hemorrhagic(?) cysts that are growing out of control and then rupturing and then growing has been going on for a year now, and I've had two laps to try and get to the bottom of it...the first time, they told me (according to what they saw on the us) that I had cancer...only to go in and find absolutely, it has been lingering over my head like a big dark cloud ever, now, I have the best Christmas present ever!!!! They might go in and remove that ovary, as the cysts seem to favor the left...but, at least I know that I have something that is not an over all threat to my well being! Thank you so much for urging to just pick up the phone...what a relief!
Thanks a bunch!

I was faithful to my advice to you and I called, too. (I also hate bugging them!) I am still waiting... My imagination says that that means the Doctor has to call (bad news), but it is probably just that they are not back yet. (Why do we let our fears rule our lives?)
Anyway I am so glad that you have good news!!
