Here is a list of the pathologists there:Your doctor may want to wait for ALL test results to be completed before contacting you; thus, it may take a week or more for a full battery of results to be available. Pathology tissue biopsies take approximately 48 hours to process and make into glass slides to be reviewed by the pathologist. Additional tests may be necessary on the tissue to make a final diagnosis. From the time of your surgery to the time the results are available to your doctor is usually 5 to 7 days.

When are you going to see an oncologist? Time is running short if you want to start chemo within the optimal time window after surgery.
Are you planning to get your chemo regimen defined at Dana Farber in Boston, then have the chemo sessions themselves implemented at your local hospital there in NH?
If your chosen chemo involves an infusion, are you going to install a port? If so, will the port surgery be done in Boston or at your local hospital there in NH?
