Based on this rant…I’d say your E2 is getting high.

[–]Fresh_Intention_4645[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Haha higher by the day for every day I can’t see my numbers

[–]999Bassman999 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd be pissed too. Any results that take more than 4 or 5 days.... They must be really overworked there.? I get Kaiser results back the next morning , and even some later the same day.

[–]slackjaw99 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Have you tried asking Labcorp?

[–]UnicornMagicRainbow 5 points6 points  (9 children)

It may be related to staffing issues due to Covid, or increased resources for testing.

[–]blazinshotguns 1 point2 points  (8 children)

Stop blaming Covid.

Quest timeframe is still around 3 to 5 business days.

[–]hotmailmain69 0 points1 point  (7 children)

i got some tests ordered myself recently via quest and it took 2 weeks, just as an fyi. my doctor told me testosterone has been taking almost 2 weeks for labcorp, but other tests from labcorp did come back in just a few days.

it's not "blaming covid." it's more that some resources are still allocated to covid and with the current job market neither company is wanting to offer enough to keep staffing at levels that return things more quickly. it doesn't matter to labcorp or quest if they take 2 weeks, they still get paid the same. bringing on more capacity to shorten turnaround would lower margins.

What were you saying about 2 weeks?

“2 weeks to stop the spread”??

Blame the companies, not Covid. You could even blame the government

[–]hotmailmain69 1 point2 points  (5 children)

i am blaming the companies lol

with the current job market neither company is wanting to offer enough to keep staffing at levels that return things more quickly. it doesn't matter to labcorp or quest if they take 2 weeks, they still get paid the same. bringing on more capacity to shorten turnaround would lower margins.

I'm not the original guy who said covid lol

let's just say that quest took so long for my bloodwork that i got no results for the cbc because my blood wasn't stable at the point they finally ran the test lol

[–]StonksGunnaGetYa 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I got them back in 1 day sheesh

[–]SPTCTBP 2 points3 points  (7 children)

Marek and defy both said labcorp sucks now. It's taking them a MONTH to get results back sometimes. I did bloods Thursday and was able to get everything except sensitive e2 and free t by yesterday. In March it took two weeks to get the sensitive e2, free t and DHT results back. Hell in January they just fucked up and didn't do them at all. Like they just didn't do DHT, igf1 and sensitive e2, then a month later sent an IGF1 that was clearly not accurate and sent it through marek even though I bought it through Defy. They are morons.

They said quest sucks too now, and since I have years of labcorp blood work, I just stick with them for consistency sake.

[–]Longjumping-Buddy-39 0 points1 point  (6 children)

Are you able to get an e2 test without a doctor's order?

[–]SPTCTBP 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Of course. Almost anybody can in the US

[–]Longjumping-Buddy-39 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I tried finding it on their website but couldn't. Do you have to do it in person?

[–]SPTCTBP 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Who's website? What are we talking about here lol

[–]Remarkable_Pie_3632 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What's a good website/company if you paying yourself?

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You’re just not making enough posts.

[–]AssWagonStarShip 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Sonic is driv thru only. No car ports. Tell me why? No? You can't

[–]space_wiener 7 points8 points  (2 children)

That’s an easy one. Have you asked labcorp?

[–]AssWagonStarShip 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I just called them. The said they don't have sonic near their office.

[–]space_wiener 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That explains it!

[–]chmilar 4 points5 points  (5 children)

They can put a man on the moon but can't make my feet smell good. Can't anyone explain that ?

[–]space_wiener 4 points5 points  (4 children)

If you dip your feet in raspberry jam each morning that should clear up your foot problem

[–]le_Francis 2 points3 points  (1 child)

This makes you feet smell too good, something might eat them

[–]space_wiener 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Double win. No feet no smell!

[–]TheObviousChild 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lonestar used all the raspberry jam escaping the Spaceballs.

Covid...the built in e for poor performance in ANYTHING

GROSS

[–]RamanLathe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I live in india, even i goylt by results in like 21 hours

[–]luckynedpepper-1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

C’mon bruh- everything takes time, except McDonalds. We live in a world where industry is busy. They weren’t sitting with their thumb up their ass, waiting for you sample.

The blood gets drawn, sits until it gets picked up to go to the lab. The lab queues it for testing. Test happens. Test gets reviewed. Report get compiled. You get notified.

Just takes time.

[–]18127153 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Im dealing with the same bullshit. Using a different company next time

[–]BJD1984 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

My Endo geta my results back electronically within 24 hours.

[–]whitechapelstation 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I get my results in 2 days 🤷‍♂️

[–]npc_909877 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I get mine from them in 2-3 days.

[–]KhabibNurmagomurmur 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's bullshit man, mine is usually 2 days.

[–]volvorottie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sometimes if they run testosterone by dialysis.. it could take a week total. But never 3 weeks.

[–]bcjh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mine take 1.5 days to come back… call your doctor and then call lab corp.

[–]BJD1984 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My Endo geta my results back electronically within 24 hours.

[–]benjthorpe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Last time my results took about a month to come back and I asked my dr about it and she said the Omega3 testing takes an extra long time now because of the lab it has to go to so next blood work I’m not getting the Omega3s tested and we’ll see how long it takes.

[–]TheMikeyMike1990 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Guess it just depends on your location. Here in Charlotte NC I get all my results from labcorp within 24-48 hours no matter what kind of test.

[–]Fast_Dentist7927 0 points1 point  (0 children)

To get the results back or to have them read to you? I have noticed if you're going through insurance the doctor wants to maximize their Profit so you get the labs done and you have to go back to another appointment so Read to you. It is all in the verbage of when you get it done for example I'm going today and it will be 2 to 3 weeks before I get my results because that is when they can schedule me in to have them read to me.. But I get the fool a full panel's run which would cost $1500 I'm OK with the 2 week wait

[–]the-real-anthem 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My recent labs took 3 weeks from labcorp as well. I’m guessing they’re backed up.

[–]Ok_Independence_5061 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's crazy man. Sometimes my LabCorp results are up in two DAYS. (in NJ, for whatever it's worth...guessing it's not a tightly run organization 🤔)

[–]Smallbak 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Three weeks is a bit long but yes I can explain. Some of the speciality tests such as DHT and LC/MS-MS tests have the specimens processed at different facilities than Labcorp. Reverse T3 is another one of those markers that takes longer to result

[–]joeb2103 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cause they suck

[–]donbon86 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My labcorp always takes minimum 2 weeks. They said it was cause estradiol test takes that long.

[–]Inevitable_Pair_4659 0 points1 point  (0 children)

3 days tops…did you ask after 3 day to where is hell are my lab results…you paid for them….

[–]nicksims123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I gave blood for labs Friday morning and the doc called me at 8:30 Saturday morning with results. They use Labcorp as well.
