Hi again everyone. I posted a couple of weeks ago about about having a long wait for oncotype results and I'm niw starting to panic in case the sample has been lost. Has anyone heard of this happening? I'm nearly sick with anxiety over this. Thank you all for your previoys replies x
call your team, tbh i didnt pay attention to the length of time, but i think surgery was late apr, second surg was late may and think maybe they told me just before second surgery? was many weeks and final surgery results were almost a month
call and ask is best
Thanks, Djct. I asked my oncologist 2 weeks ago and sh said she has been emailing the company in US and would phone me as soon as she heard anything, but nothing so far. It's at least 7 weeks I've been waiting and and to be honest this has been the most stressful issue since diagnosis. I have an oncology appt on Tues and I'm going to request someone speak with the lab directly. I'm not a pushy person but this last 2 months might change that!
Have you enquired with oncology? When I had my oncology appointment I asked for my results only to be told they forgot to send it off. It was then sent off and took just 3 weeks for the results. Maybe make a call to your breast care nurse. Good luck and best wishes for a low result.
I got my oncotype score back today and it's 34 so I'll be having chemo very soon. I'm so disappointed - I convinced myself I had dodged the bullet. Feeling very overwhelmed tonight.
It's a big shock, isn't it? Thank God you're nearly through your chemo - it gives me hope that I won't be too much of a wimp! I'm having 6 sessions over 18 weeks which I hope I can manage. Good luck and God bless for tomorrow. I'll be thinking of you to give me wee bit of courage. XO
