I am fairly new to posting but thought this might be the right room to post this. I had been having some problems with I thought my gallbladder and had been through several tests. (C-Scan,Hida-Scan,Ultrasound). Well everything came back fine with that but when doing this they found a spot on my right lung. I have been a basket case for the last 2 weeks. The Dr. ordered a C-Scan on my chest and the results they finally gave me were that it was scarring from an old infection. He referred to it as a granuloma? I don't like the sounds of that but researching on the internet it exactly what he explained to me. (Or the Dr.'s nurse did) I can account for a really bad bronchitis./pnemonia(sp?) last winter that I don't think healed right. I had taken 1 antibiotic and then was still having problems breathing and not feeling better so the Dr. just gave me an inhaler. But, I did smoke on occassion over the years and I am so nervous. The Dr. is not concerned and wants me to do a repeat Scan in 3 months and make sure it is cleared up. I have always been one to worry and keep thinking I sould do something more. I had called a specialist and they said I have to be referred in order to see them. I dont know what to do. I am calling the Dr. today and going to see if I can talk to him and have him explain everything again to me and hubby. I thought I would feel better talking to him instead of the nurse. Can anyone else help or give ideas what they would do? I have also been going to a surgeon for knee problems. I am falling apart. I would appreiciate any input. Thanks
It's normal to feel scared with something like this. I would set up a time to talk with your doctor aobut your concerns and he should be willing to either refer you to a specialist or instruct you to get a second opinion. Especially if you explain how scared you are and that it's not because you don't trust him. Try to think positive and that he is correct because the stress and worrying will make everything seem worse (I know it's easier said then done!) I hope you get some good input from him and about your knees! Just hang in there and you will be fine!
The best thing is not to panic. I had a spot show up on my lung 3 years ago. It turned out to be a calcium deposit on one of my ribs. I was a wreck, and then it was nothing. I hope the same thing happens for you. Ditto what vmiller05 said... just get a second opinion and try not to believe everything you read on the internet. It's scary when ANYTHING goes wrong, but you have to believe the best until proven otherwise.
