It takes weeks some times to grow a mycobacterium to determine what type it is. My sputum tests took 6 weeks to grow (I have M. abscessus and left-sided bronchiectasis). However, if you truly believe this is a mistake, you always have the option of getting a second opinion. Even if you trust your doctor’s diagnosis, getting a second opinion would offer more information. It is never to late to ask questions.
