  • 5 weeks and no lab results from polyp - is this normal?

    I had a 7 mm polyp removed from my rectum on 16th October and was told I would have the results back in 2 to 3 weeks. It's now been almost 5 weeks and still no results. I'm starting to worry that the polyp has been lost! Has anyone else had to wait such a long time for their lab results?
