Worried waiting for results

Posted , 4 users are following.

I had an endoscopy 10 days ago and was told i have barretts. I have regular scopes. Every 2 years due to my hernia so i was not overly concerned as i knew it was more recent development. They took some biopsy and told me to ring my gp in a couple of weeks to check the results. Again not worried. However i recieved an appointment in the post yesterday for a specialist clinic in the hospital in 4 days. Seeing as it took 5 months to get an appointment for the scope Should i now be worried as this was not planned.
