I don't know if I have told everyone here about the masses on my left lung.
I went and had a MRI on my thoracic spine last year and something showed up on my left lung. Well, about 2 months ago I had a MRI of my thoracic and lumbar spine, along with a catscan of my chest. I hadn't been told that the mass was even there. Well, after my pcp got the results back, she told me that I had a mass on my left lung along with two smaller ones, but the larger one was stable. It scared the daylights out of me.
I haven't smoked a day in my life, but my father smoked around us for years, so I guess the second hand smoke may have caused it.
Well, my pcp referred me to a pulmonologist to see what the masses are. I finally got up the nerve today to call the doctor and make an appointment. I know I should have made the appointment as soon as she gave me the referral, but I've been so scared.
My appointment with the doctor is July 5 at 3pm. I know it's about three weeks away, and that three weeks seems so far away right now. I know it will probably go fast like time has been lately, but I sure wish it would hurry.
Could you all keep me in your thoughts and maybe say a prayer that everything will turn out ok? Thanks
love and hugs
