I have been chasing up my scan result from 10 days ago. I know the result is in. The consultant hasn’t replied to my calls. I have insisted that I’d prefer to know by phone. Her secretary called to say the Dr is waiting for the full report to discuss at multi-disciplinary meeting. I’m worried. That sounds like the cancer is back. I’ve never heard of a full report before.
Waiting for scan full report-what does that mean? - My Ovacome
I can’t say for sure but I think someone has a cursory look at the scan to check there is nothing that needs urgently treating. Then it sits in a pile awaiting a radiographer to look in detail and do a full report, comparing if necessary, to previous scans. Sorry I can’t help more but I know at the Christie around 10 days is the standard waiting time.
I have experience of different interpretations between radiographers- they are very cautious about telling you it is clear if there’s any minuscule doubt. I know that waiting drives you mad but try to be patient because then you will get a definitive opinion rather than an approximate one xx
I know my clinical trial team have a quick look at the scan but then have to wait for the full report. There is always an MDT meeting so please don’t read too much into this. I have given upphoning for my results because only the doctor is allowed to tell me and he is always busy.
