Aw now I'm really worried. Think I'll give it a few more days. Just can't face the thought of ringing them about this , for some reason I'd rather get the bad news via letter than over the phone. I had a bad feeling about this before even making the appointment.
Had mine today and was told that if I hadn't heard anything by 3 weeks to ring my GP surgery. The nurse also said that if there were dodgy cells in the result I'd probs get a letter with a hospital appt within 2 weeks as they are really quick to send them out.
I'm in exactly the same situation, the nurse mentioned something about results within a week, we're now firmly in week two. I called the doc yesterday and they haven't received the results at their end yet either - I'm giving it another few days before I call again.
I was told usually within a week (last one definitely was) but currently they were taking a couple of weeks......it took 6 weeks exactly! Interestingly the wording has changed. Mine have always stated that the sample "is normal". Now it says "looks normal". My first thought was "well are you sure or not?!" but then figured it's just a way of covering themselves.
