I find getting the quick results I go to the source myself! You can go to the medical records and get copies of the results yourself now if you want. If they had to send out a lab to an outlying place (which most likely they did) then those labs will take longer to get. OR you can wait for your doc to take the time to review the results, then the office assistants to find the time to call you to either A.) Give you an uneducated ZERO knowledge result reading or B.) set up an appointment with your doc.
The only bad thing about getting the results yourself is that you may not have a clue what they mean... In that case you call your doc office and tell the office staff about your "dir" need to see the doctor related to your results.
This is the fastest way I have found to do things. It works! It only took 8 days from when I went "blind" at work to seeing my pcp, an eye doc, getting an MRI, and walking into my new neuro's office with the films and results in hand! Oh yeah, and being diagnosed =/
I am sorry to hear that you had to get an LP done TWICE!!! OUCH!!! It is good to hear that you are rocovering well! Hope this helps, good luck to you.
