I had my Barrett’s surveillance gastroscopy almost three weeks ago and a ‘lump’ was discovered. The results of my biopsy and CT scan are apparently back yet I am still non the wiser about what is happening. Apparently the biopsy sample was inadequate for proper interpretation and the term ‘equivocal’ was used. I’m going to need another gastroscopy done but so far haven’t received an appointment and I’m left wondering if all results come through in such a slow and non urgent manner. As far as the CT scan is concerned I have been told nothing at all. The tiny bit of information I have has only come about through repeated phone calls to the consultants secretary. I’m still a worried mess with all this waiting in the dark for some kind of explanation or diagnosis. Has anyone else any experience like this with the NHS process ?
I’d like to wish everyone the very best on this forum. Thanks. Paul
