ok so today i had my 3 month check up with the pulmonologist. had my CT scan before hand. more nodules in the lungs or i should say "on" the lungs. seems they are on the outer surface to just inside the outer layer of the lungs. a couple dissapeared since june , but some new ones appeared. and the fevers, had a break for a few months and now in the past 3 weeks i have had 2 each lasting 2-4 days at 103-105. so they sent me for a ultra sound of my veins looking for blood clots that may be causing the fevers and the nodules by being very small and going all the way into the smallest vessels in the lungs( to the outer edge) and causing inflamation, which could be triggering the fevers. well the only clot they could find was in my left shoulder and that has been there since the fevers started in sep of '05. sooo, back to the drawing board. so what a nice way to spend 7 hours at the hospital. oh and more blood cultures to be done next fever. ( nothing ever grows). the last resort would be a surgery to get a piece of lung to check. but that wont be unless i get a rapid growth of these nodules or i get other symptoms. cant do a needle biopsy as they are too small. well thats it.
