Glad you got through it. The anxiety is worse than the procedure. Here's hoping for a negative pathology report!
I had my biopsy on Monday morning last week and had my pathology report by Wednesday afternoon (2 days). I guess it's just the luck of the draw. It may have something to do with where you go. I went to Chicago Prostate Cancer Center and I bet they have their own pathology lab where they do the work themselves. The place seemed to be a complete, self-contained hospital loaded with oncologists, anesthesiologists and surgeons.
Very glad you are OK.. My uncle had described the feeling the way you did... like a rubber band snap and a sting.
I had mine in two days too. A week is the norm unless like you and I both had a urological clinic with their own pathologists in house. Ironically I went elsewhere for treatment.
I still say it felt like a staple gun.
As you now see Jack all the worry and anxiousness is kind of foolish. But waiting for its results is not. I hope yours is negative..
