So now I wait

I have had a couple of health issues come to light. One, I believe, is genetic, since I have had it as long as I can recall. My new doctor, though, wanted it checked. The specialist is checking that, but also found a mass in my lower abdomin. So today was the ct and ultrasound. I could tell the U/S tech found something from the number of times she asked me the same questions over and over.
So now I wait. My doctor's office won't get results until Monday, and won't call at work to give results.
So now I wait.

Thanks
Not obsessing, but I am a little nervous. The woman I sponsor is having a GREAT time telling me to 'let it go' and that I 'have to let time take time.' She makes me laugh.

Thanks Amy. If there is anything wrong, I should hear Monday or Tuesday.

Thanks Brenda. I am not worried about the trace hematuria, as I said, I have had that off and on since I was a teenager. I am concerned about the mass. It could be anything from an ovarian cyst to ovarian cancer to scar tissue.
The trouble is, of course, those are entirely different things.

Grateful for the prayers!

Still no word. How long does it take a radiologist to read something and report to DR?
