Foundation One Testing, How Long?

Postby meatie » Tue Nov 26, 2019 12:45 am

From the time the lab receives the biopsy tissue until the results are released to the patient, how long would it take?

FOLOX+Avs 12-rd 10/14 to 4/15
Reoccurrence, KRAS mutant 11/15
Folfiri 18-rds 11/15-8/16
FOLFIRI with Ramicirumab 28-rds 8/17-9/18
Regorafenib 10/18-10/19
Lonsurf 10/19 onward

I don't remember how long it took, Meatie. But I am thinking it was several weeks before the doctor gave me my results.

Thanks for replying Cynthia!
My mother had a needle biopsy two weeks ago for foundation one testing. So, I guess the result won't come back until after thanksgiving. She currently on Lonsurf, after which it would be uncharted territory...
