That's putting it mildly!
So on Monday I went in to the allergist to have a CT scan done to just get a good look at my lungs and see how things look with this newly diagonsed asthma. Over 3 hrs later I leave sobbing convinced I have lung cancer.
My scan showed a small mass in my lower right lung along with mild emphysema. I have of coarse been on pins and needles, crying and nauseated ever since then. I don't do well with health drama concerning myself since I've had kids.
Somehow I was able to slip into an appt slot with a very busy pulmonologist this morning. Things he said made Travis feel much better-me? A little better-not 100%. Apparently because of it's nice shape and roundness he feels it doesn't look like "nasty cancer" as he called it and I will be getting a PET scan done next week and a follow up CT in 3 months to watch for growth.
Ok-so that should make me feel better, right? I mean-I already had the scenario in my head of him saying immediately "this doesn't look so good" so I do have some relief in not hearing those words... I guess just the fact that there is something IN me and I don't know what is IS is driving me berserk. To top things off he says it's in a spot that cannot be biopsied if tests come back bad. That is always lovely to hear. Maybe that's why I didn't leave with warm and toasty thoughts...
So anyway-if you're reading this please send me some good healthy vibes.
