Lab testing procedures
      #6137 - 06/24/00 11:48 AM

I was recently tested (3 days ago). The doctor's office said the results would be back in 10 days, and they would call me. I've had lab results back from the same office in 3 days. A friend who is a nurse told me labs are required to notify doctors ASAP if a test comes back life threatening or infectious. By phone, fax, etc. And that labs test rather quickly. The feeling is the more time goes by the better chances for a neg result. Does anyone know if this is the way labs operate? I feel 10 days is a bit long. Thanks.

Did you get your results yet? I hope it was good news. I just took an antibody test too on last week Wednesday. It's now Monday and they didn't call me yet. It's so scary waiting for these results yeah? Let us know how it went.
