Ana Tests

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I was just wondering how long it usually takes to get these test results back. The rheumatologist called me earlier this week to give me the x-ray results of my hips, normal, so the pain is being caused by the osteoarthritis. Still haven't heard anything on the ana test so I was just wondering (impatient me!!). ;)

 

Thanks

Tammy

It could also depend on whether the lab is in house or away, the day of the week tests are submitted, etc. It doesn't hurt to call the doctor's office and ask - I have had blood test results just put in my file with no notification whatsoever and the doctor didn't report on them till I asked. I'd give a week, then call.


Warm wishes,

Jefa

Tammy,

The lab I use usually takes only 24 hours for most tests, however, like Jefa - the results get sent to the doctor, put on the computer and that's that. To get the results, I either have to call or get the results at my next appointment. The only time I've been called was when there was a problem that the doctor wanted to talk about.

 

Big Hugs,
