When will I get the results?
After the exam, the physician explains the results. If the effects of the sedatives are prolonged, the physician may suggest an appointment for a later date when the patient can fully understand and remember the results. If a biopsy has been performed or a polyp removed, the results will not be available for three to seven days.
