I am currently waiting on liver biopsy results from a test done on April 21st. I was told 3-5 days, but now I will have to wait till my doctors appt on Tuesday to get them, the day before my vacation starts.
Why do nurses tell you 3 to 5 days when it never seems to be that short of time? I was in tears yesterday, blubbering on the phone to a poor surgery scheduler and then my GI's nurse because the pressure of waiting on this and building up to this has just been about as much as I can handle. So as an HA sufferer you go through the following stages.
1. WTF!!?? Why are my results not ready.
2. Oh God, maybe they found something else
3. Oh crap, it really is the worst possible disease, not the one they are testing for.
4. I really am going to die, aren't I?
The problem is, I already know that I have this disease and what the course of it is for the most part. There should be no surprises here. I am just waiting to know how advanced my disease is. I truly have something to worry about, but its the HA that takes over and takes normal legit concern to a level of hysteria.
I am sure you can relate....
