How long do it take to get the results to the Sputum Test? I know they said 60 days but has anyone got the results any sooner?

Thanks in advance.

Mostly it will take,yeah 60 days (2 months)that is the culture test..if your fiancee will receive a call from the st.lukes earlier than 2 months,im afraid to say but she might be positive and have to undergo 6 months treatment,well lets just hope she wont.if she has the history or being exposed to someone who has (TB),she might be positive...

Results of sputum test are known within 1-3 days.

The culture test (which is gathered from the sputum) is 8 weeks (according to SLMC).

They will periodically check the culture and if it turns positive they will call immediately so the patient can begin medication.

The medication usually lasts for 6 months. Under many/most circumstances, SLMC will require the patient to come to to hospital every day to receive medication (except weekends & holidays).

The US CDC indicates the culture test procedure must be minumum of 6 weeks and not more than 8 weeks.

We presented this to SLMC (with documentation) but they said...sorry we will not release negative test results early. It will be in 8 weeks. :(

There are new tests available (recommended by CDC) that can have results within days but they are more expensive so.........
