Tomorrow it will be two weeks since I had my test and I was wondering whether anyone could give me an indication of how long I should expect to wait to get my results.

The man who carried out the test said he thought that I had an hernia but my Consultant would need to confirm that. He also added that I am making acid when I am asleep which is worrying.

Since having the test I seem to be suffering from AR even more and I wonder whether my anxiety is making matters worse.

    Hi Ted!

    When i asked this question a few months back noone answered! It does depend on your NHS trust, but it's about 6 to 8 weeks before you get to know. Mine was done early November, i got results just a couple of days before Christmas - and that was with a bit of pestering! Hope all goes well for you!

      Thanks Glennie at least that gives me some idea now. On your point about NHS Trusts I was wondering that as down here in East Sussex it does seem that there is less money than when we lived in Croydon. Although Croydon may have more people calling on its resources.

      You obviously know how I am feeling not knowing what is taking place inside me.

      hat was you result. Do you have an hernia. Whatever it is I hope its a positive result. Thanks again Ted

    Hi I had this Done at the beginning of the

    Year as this was one of the tests I needed

    To see if I could have the linx procedure.

    I had to wait for the information to be

    Taken from the monitor and put on

    To there system. It took about 4 weeks

    And I then had a follow up appointment

    With the consultant who explained the

    Results and discussed my options.

    So hopefully not much longer to wait.
