Hi Dana, We were told the results a little earlier than most here. My husband had surgery at 8am on a Tuesday, and at 9pm on Wednesday when Surgeon went to ward on day 2, he told my husband the complete path report findings which he already had with him. 4 days later we got a copy when the catheter was removed. We asked to know the post op pathology as soon as it was available but did not expect it quite so early. Surgeon said initially about
4 days to know results but for us it was about
36 hours after surgery.
