Thanks everyone. As you all know, waiting on PSA results can be murder. This time around, it took six days until I heard from the doc and to be honest, more than one bottle of wine was popped
open this past week. Crazy things can go through the head and I started thinking that maybe the doc was stalling till she had time for a lengthy phone conversation with me. I could give lessons at being neurotic.
Next time around, I'm NOT going to have the blood drawn in the doctor's office. I'm going to have her give me the request form and go directly to the lab/testing facility. Then, I'll be able to get my results directly from the lab, within a day or so.
