So I rang the nurse today to get my results. I had the 4 week test on the 8th Jan and it was just a qualitative test and came back detected. They sent the sample away to be re-tested for viral load and apparently the result for that was undetected. The lower limit is apparently <12. Little bit confused.... But very pleased all the same!!
If I didn't have a need to understand all this I'd just accept it and leave it there. But I must understand...can anyone explain. I guess they are different labs but I would've thought the lab doing the quantitative would have the more sensitive equipment and this seems backwards.
Geez I've been waiting so patiently to use that banana!
Also have a 6 week qualitative coming through (she is chasing it up) so that will confirm for me that the UND is for real! Because I'm having trouble believing it at the moment...
Edited to add: 6 week qualitative pcr UNDETECTED
