so hubby had mpMRI a week ago. He chased hospital today to be told his report is not ready and he can chase after 17 days! How rubbish. He’s seen the referral from DRE which says his prostate is enlarged with a harder lump so we are kind of gearing up for not the best news. What is the normal time to wait in your experience? Thanks
Yes I am reading all the resources on this site to be prepared on his behalf!
The obvious is just that, while the final report, with all the detail, has to be compiled then passed to the consultant for review. And that isn't just a rubber stamping exercise: every scan has to be signed off, and often the experience of the consultant will bear fruit.Sadly, that means the report is sitting in two In-Trays while overworked (and underpaid) NHS staff wade through them.
Of course it's frustrating. But I'm pretty sure they aren't doing it just to spite you!
