Hi I havent posted for a while, though I still check in as to whats happening to everyone.
I had to do a 24hr urine collection (not sure if this is the CA125 test) plus blood test a month before my check up with my oncologist so the results would be there for my appointment.
When I took the urine collection and gave it into the lab I went straight to get my fasting blood test done after a long wait I was called through but they couldn't find the test request from my Doctor on computor. After being bounced from one department to the other several times my onc's secretary came to find me and finally sorted it out so the blood test could be taken.
My appointment was 22 September and when I got in to see my oncologist she told me the test results weren't there as the urine one was missing. They would investgate what had happened, but to make an appointment for six months time. I was not happy with this and asked the CNS to let me know their findings.
It turned out that my urine collection was sent for testing on the 18 September 2015, even thought I'd taken it in on 24 August 2015.
I asked if it would still be suitable for testing after such a long time but never got an answer. I was told that if there was a problem they would contact me. Not happy in case they forget I said I would phone for the results and was told to try in six weeks.
Now im wondering if the test is any good and if I should just do another one. Feeling left up in the air over this. Any comments please?
