Well I finally got in to see the pulmonologist today, being as the last couple weeks I have been coughing up blood. They did x-rays and a breathing test yesterday and a cat scan today. The doctor says I have a mass on my right lung and a much smaller one on my right. He thinks that it is most likely cancer but I need to have a biopsy done on Friday. I wont know the results until probably next Thursday. Please if you can would you please pray that everything will be ok. Im not afraid of dieing just worried about who will take care of my husband with his MS. Thanks all.
Gentle hugs

You're both in my prayers too, Shirley, and I'm sorry you have to wait so long to find out! Hopefully, they're wrong and it turns out to be benign.

*Great big hugs* to you Shirley.

From the positive point of view - it is good that they discovered it because now they can form a plan to help you fight. Will be saying prayers, wishing the best, and sending all the best vibes I can for you and your hubby. Take the best care of yourself that you can. Let the doctors work hard for you. Keep us up to date on how you're doing. We care here.

Shirley, I've been away for a few days, so I'm just seeing this message now. I am praying for you that the doctors will be able to quickly determine what's going on in your body, and that they can fix whatever the problem is. I truly hope it's not cancer, but even if it is, there are still strong possibilities of a complete cure.

I will be praying for you!

Conditions: Fibromyalgia, Severe Myofascial Pain, Chronic Pelvic Pain (with permanent muscle damage), Femoroacetabular Impingement (CAM and Pincer), Reynauds, IBS, Surgical Adhesions, Ophthalmic Migraines, Severe Hot Flashes (both Surgical Menopause and medication related), plus physically unable to vomit due to the Nissen, and I have extremely tiny veins with a lot of scar tissue...a joy when it comes to having to give blood or get an IV started

Surgeries: Appendix, Uterus, Nissen Fundoplication for GERD, Left Ovary, Gallbladder, Right Ovary, TVT

Medications: Oxycontin, Cesamet, Tramacet, Cymbalta, Flexeril and Clonidine plus Laxaday, Vitamin D and a Multi-Vitamin daily

If it is my time to go I know that god has a plan for taking care of everything down here. I am not saying I am giving up, if this is cancer i will fight it for my family and friends. Thank you so much again for all your prayers.
