I had a follow-up ct scan of my chest with contrast this week. Got the results yesterday--nothing I didn't know already. Not sure what it really tells the doctors? Still have the same apical scarring indicating an old infection--ID doc is proposing an old tb infection? Other than that--nothing. Which I suppose is good news, it's just that I'm tired of having no answers. In any case, I see the ID doc on Tuesday to discuss. We'll see what she says now.
