And while I have you, is this right - I rang for my results today. I assumed there would be some as I had a biopsy taken. No one said anything about what to do at the hospital but MIL asked me if I had them so I figured I should ring. No results at the surgery and they told me to ring the hospital. I was told that wasn't right and the GP should be ringing. I explained that he wouldn't be ringing for results as he doesn't know I had a biopsy. I have left a message for the doctor's secretary and will have to see if she calls me.
Hello again. Period could come at any time I reckon, may even be a month or two. As a GP I don't usually receive results until after you have been back for a follow up appointment, or if you don't need follow up then the consultant should write you a letter with the results. Often it takes 2 weeks for the consultant to get the results back from the lab, so he/she may just be receiving them now and then should you know. The secretary should know the procedure but they are notoriously rubbish at calling back so I would ring again if you haven't heard in a few days. I wouldn't worry too much as if it was polyps they are very unlikely to be anything nasty.
