Pre-op blood test question
« on: December 31, 2012, 05:18:07 AM »
does anyone know how long it takes to get the results for a blood pregnancy test back?  The doc said to get it done within 7 days of the surgery but the labs are closed til the 2nd and my surgery is for the 4th.  If I go in on the 2nd will it get done in time? 

I am so worried something is going to go wrong!

They did receive the results in time.  However they also did a urine test on site this morning.  Thank you for the information.
