  • Hi Happyfeet1,

    Thank you for your replyGrin.It's just having some idea of the wait I suppose.Mine have gone to Cardiff so not sure if that makes it quicker.Hope you are well xx

  • Hi  , thanks I’m doing well. Just to mention, there’s also a BRCA positive group here which you could find helpful. I joined it while I was waiting for my results and although I turned to have a different gene mutation (ATM, less commonly known and only quite recently tested for), I still pop in there from time to time. It’s not nearly as ‘busy’ as this group but still useful. Xx

  • Hi Budsbails23, I waited 7 weeks from the blood test for my results.  I am in Manchester.

    Thankfully all negative, so good luck with yours and hope you are not waiting too long.

  • I've been waiting 10 weeks now (london)

  • Got my results last week 19 weeks ...also cardiff. 

  • I was told it would be about 8 weeks. I’m in the South West so bloods go to Bristol x 

  • I'm reading all these replies and thinking  you've all had blood tests for the faulty gene!   I only done a nose swab and popped it in the post!!

  • Hi GillP, I visited the breast unit and had 2 vials of blood taken. My BCN wanted to ensure they had enough for all the tests.  They tested for numerous different genes.

    Can you chase this up with your bcn?

  • I will have to chase this up. My daughters are flapping about worrying about it.. I will get my surgeon who gave me the test to do, to chase them up.   Thanks
