    Some doctors go nuts if they think they might find something that maybe indicates so and so, but could possibly be one of 50 million things, but they have a new guinea pig, so why not call and be all dramatic and stuff and make a ton more money narrowing it down with 30 more tests because they NEED a vacation, their 12th child needs braces, and the 3rd 4th and 5th children are currently in college drinking away daddies "hard earned" money.......know what I mean?

    Even though, will pray for you sis [​IMG]

    They have to cover all their bases. Don't stress about it until you hear more. Because of liability issues doctors try to cover their behinds. They don't always think about how it's going to sound to the patient when they communicate with their patients. Always wise on their part to play it safe.

    The good news is there is some prompt follow up, so your Doc is on the job. Keep us posted!

    Good luck Deb. I'm also waiting for my test results from my complete physical on Tuesday. I haven't been to a doctor since 1996 so this is a little unnerving. Like someone else said, your doc is on the ball and doing their job. I wish mine would be. They told me 24 to 48 hours they'd have results [​IMG]

    Doctors don't get paid for lab tests, so ordering a bunch of tests is not lining the doctor's pockets...the lab gets paid.

    Wow Deb, I hope it's not anything big... unless maybe you won the doctor's version of Publisher's Clearing House. Make sure if you get one of those big checks that you take lots of pics! [​IMG]
