Hi haiz;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Normally the HIV test is done on the same day I can't figure why there should be a delay of 2 days.Although if the test is done with your blood sample and if it is preserved properly the result should not be affected but as for reliability it is necessary to be done in a reputed laboratory so that the laboratory can be trusted.
Thanks

History of Breast cancer in 2013 with bilateral mastectomy. Why the blood tests - I didn t feel good but I cannot pin point it, nausea, fatique, abdominal pain, flank pain R side (*kidney and bladder U/S normal), numb toes on both feet. My question - what the heck is going on?? What type of dr do I need to see since Kaiser just sends me lab tests and puts diagnosis and results in my on line record and told me this isn t alarming and to change my diet. Ha, my diet is good!
