I hate this waiting. Waiting on results of an MR ent that will determine whether or not I need surgery. Had the test on Monday--thought I'd hear back this morning. This is killing me. I'd be climbing the walls if I wasn't so darn weak---which makes it all the worse, eh? How do you get through this? I want to assume that b/c he didn't call me back right away, I'm in the clear but that would be false hope. UGH! Any advice?

I would call and ask the office if the results are back. I agree the waiting is terrible!!!!
I hope you get good news!

I am sorry about you having to wait.
It was waiting for tests the first time I had crohns and again now that has caused me to suffer depression and now have to take antidepressants.

Good luck with the tests

Waiting definitely sucks... :(... Ever see the movie... what was it called? Had Adam Sandler in it... Click? Clicker? *Somethin' like that*

Fast-forward button, that'd be nice...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Waiting is the hardest thing to do. I am glad that I see all my doctors at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto so the wait is never long. I can get my answers within hours. I will call the office of the doc that ordered my tests (including blood work) to get my answer. Most times they will fax me a copy of the test results and make an appiontment right away if needed or at a later date if required.

I'm STILL waiting on my results from Monday's MR enterography. Life is on hold. Called gi office yesterday. Said he'd call me back. I know this is an urgent field. Someday, someone else may wait when I'm in trouble. But it's sooooo frustrating. Need to book a class this summer and want a vacation. Friends want to visit. And I haven't started humira --waiting almost a month for all this testing. Just on pentasa and immodium so having trouble keeping weight on and energy up. ugh!

Thanks for letting me vent!!
