Oncotype delayed - 3 weeks
I think this is just a vent! But I had surgery May 12th. They said 2 weeks for oncotype score results. I called last Friday and they said they still didn't have results and as soon as nurses get it they let doctor know then I should know. So now its 3+ weeks post-op and still no score. I have my MO appt scheduled for next week, but may have to move back without results. I got in touch with nurse navigator yesterday and she said they were looking into it and were in touch with the lab to try to get results released. It makes me nervous like did they mess something up? Is the sample ok?
Then on top of it my family and SO are concerned and keep asking, inquiring. Then I kind of feel pressure to try to find out, but the best I can do is leave a voicemail at the office and send email inquiries. At the same time, I'm trying not to let my life revolve around this diagnosis which is hard for others to understand I guess. Which I understand that they are just concerned, but it almost turns into like me feeling pressure to have an answer for them!
Anyone else have a longer than expected wait? I feel like I continually read about delays with offices getting back to us. I like my doctors and they are great surgeons, but they spell out all these resources, but then it feels like it comes up short. I also feel like they can only handle one question at a time, like I try to follow-up with a few other things I have going on with healing/scarring to make sure I am on the right track, but they seem to only answer 1 question. I know they are busy and probably doing their best. But when it's your care on the line, you just want answers. Very frustrating!
