Waiting on test results…
I was admitted to the hospital July 23, and had a lung biopsy via bronchoscopy done on July 27th. While in the hospital I had a full panel of blood work, CT scan and x-ray done. They did mention ILD and RLD as my prognosis. My question is… how long is the usual wait to receive test results from a biopsy done via bronchoscopy? I have not started any treatment except supplemental O2, and my SpO2% usually drops to the high 70s when I walk to the bathroom or other rooms in the house. I have had better days where I can (with oxygen) get up and make supper. But I am on supplemental oxygen all day. So how long is not too long to wait? Does anyone have problems getting ahold of their doctor? I have tried calling multiple times in the week and no results. I’m beginning to worry.
Thanks for your advise… and for listening to me ramble and rant.
