Try to stay calm, hopefully it will turn out to be nothing serious. Please keep us posted ok?
Thanks Stacie, Patty, Connie, and Judy, I'm sure it's not cancer anyway. Well at least I would hope not since he didn't call me himself and tell me to get my butt in there. My biggest worry is it's going to be somthing autoimmune that will cause me to not be able to get a transplant. Than again I have had pneumonia so many times I could have scaring from that. I don't know if that would show up as a (spot). I'm not gonna freak out though. It takes to much energy . Anyone else ever gotten spots on their lungs? just curious.
Love ya all
thanks again ladies

Thanks Hippi and Rosie, Right now I'm really frustrated. I can't get the sleep study done until the 22nd and I can't get a pulm. appt until the 30th. I talked to the nurse and said I don't want to wait until the 30th to find out what's going on with the spots on my lungs. She said she would have the dr. call me as soon as he comes in. I got a call about an hour ago and she said she was calling to check on me. That the dr. doesn't usually come in on thursday because he teaches at the hospital. I said well can't you tell me anything? She just said No ma'am! You're right hippi waiting is the worst thing. You'd think these dr. would know that. So of course now I'm thinking the worst because the nurse won't tell me anything. I've had nurses tell me things lots of times. So now I don't have a choice but to wait. You know I can handle what ever they tell me but they have to tell me somthing so I can deal with it.
anyway I'm done ranting
thanks again love ya
Hi all, Marji, no that is not a silly question. Actually my pcp mentioned taking a tb test but than before I left the office she had forgotten about it. I'll ask the pulm to do one whenI go in. Patty, thank you so much for calling and checking on me today. It helps to know people really do care.
Ok so anyway the pulm office called. They sent my report over to an oncologist. I have 2 spots one on each lung. Good news is one is diffinently benign. The other one is (not sure yet). So if one is benign I'm just going to beleive they both are. Now what is causing it is another story. Anyway I have a pulm. appt next wenesday at 4 pm so I will hopfully get some more info. I just hope it's nothing that will cause a problem with a transplant. There are a lot of people here with a lot worse problems than mine and I just want to say thank you so much for taking the time to support me. It means a lot. I think it's time for a nap!
You folks around Texas keep your feet dry!
love ya guys carol
