I was wondering if those of you who have had this test can tell me how long it took for you to get final results. I swallowed the pill three weeks ago, and still have no results, and am just going crazy from waiting.
The assistant who removed the equipment told me "give us a call in about a week to see if results are ready". I did, had to leave a message, and never got a call back. Well I didn't want to rush the doctor, since I really want him to take his time looking thru the pictures. So I waited until it had been two weeks and called again. This time they put me on hold and got the nurse/M.A. She got on the phone and said this particular test "takes awhile" for results because of all the pictures. She then reassured me that I'd get a call when they were ready. (they had told me that no follow up appointment was necessary..that if everything was normal I would get a call saying so, and if not, they'd call me in for appointment) So it's been three weeks now, and so I called again this morning, and the receptionist had no info, and just sent a message back to the MA to call me back. I am nearly sick from the stress of waiting...let alone sick from the symptoms that brought me there in the first place (last March...). This is kind of the test of last resort for me...to see if there is any reason for symptoms (i have had all other tests so far...all mostly normal.) I have lost 5 more pounds the last two weeks alone...and would really like some answers.
On another, scary note...may or may not be related....i started having dysfunctional bleeding and pelvic pain (gyn stuff) recently and went to the gyn. They sent me for ultrasound and results are concerning...growth in uterus and on ovary and some other abnormal uterine findings...they ordered another (more invasive) test to be done "asap" according to the nurse. I am starting to wonder if my GI stuff isn't GI at all, but all because of something going on with my reproductive system.....so getting these results would be really helpful.
I just wasn't sure if I was expecting too much to think the pill Cam results should be ready by now or not....???? I do know my GI is VERY popular, and VERY busy...and it usually takes a long time to get any result from his office.
