Well, I had my appointment with the pulmonary dr today at 3pm. He listened to my breathing and had me to take deep breaths while he listened on my back and then my upper chest on each side.

He then talked to me about the places on my lung. He said since the bigger one hadn't changed from the 1st MRI in January 2010 until April 2011 when I had the ct-scan that there wouldn't be anything to worry about with that one.

Then he talked about the two smaller ones. He said that they're too small to biopsy, but they're most likely nothing to worry about either.

He told me to go and get another catscan at the same place I got the other one in December so that it can be compared with the other one I had in April.

I'm so relieved. I will get that ct-scan, but I'm sure it's going to show that those masses haven't changed.

Eveyone take care. I hope you're all having a low pain day.

love and hugs

Loretta!….I'm so happy you finally got this done…and good news on it as well! Congrat's!

I got busy today at work, and been off line, and when I got home my computer decided to act up…I'm guessing the internet was the problem at this time. It happens!

Anyways, we all are thrilled you got this taken care of!

Take care,

Thank you Michael. I really appreciate your support. I'm glad you're doing so well. Take care and I hope you have your internet fixed at home by now. I know how aggravating it is when the wireless messes up here.

So glad you got this looked into Loretta. That must be a relief for you. If there are changes though, it would be good to get a second opinion as your doctor said he can't be sure about the small masses.

Wishing you well

Hi Flower and Suzane I really feel better when I know my online friends in my corner supporting me. I will definitely be getting the ct-scan in December to make sure that nothing it going on.

Take care. I hope you're having a low pain night.
