    I have been waiting 2 weeks for results. Is this normal? I am anxious to start a clincical trial because I am now stage 4 with METs. Thanks.

      Yes, sometimes it will be 2-3 weeks or more. Maybe call your doc daily and be the squeaky wheel?

      You have 50+% change of being positive. Just remember to be in contact with the docs for a plan "B" 

      Good luck!
