Well, my doctor called me today to give me my results from my chest x-ray, I knew right away if she was calling me on Christmas Eve it wasn't going to be good. She said that there was calcification in the right lung and that she was going to have the radiologist compare the x-ray from August to this one to see if there was any growth.
See, she just came back to our clinic after being gone for a couple of years, I used to see her for a number of years. Unfortunately, in August I was seeing this other doctor, whom, I do not care for, but that is a whole other story, he simply told me I had a couple of spots on my lung at the time. He followed up with a CT scan which supposedly came out clear so I didn't think too much more about it. I thought, well it must have been fluid or something at the time. Obviously not. This lady doctor is a very good friend of mine, our daughters grew up together, we used to take family vacations together and spend holidays together and such. She is much more caring and will do a much better job looking after me and my medical care.
I also have a heart echo scheduled for the 29th, as she believes there is an issue with my heart valve. So, between the calcification on the lung and the valve issue it's no wonder I've been a bit short of breath, huh?
It will all work out though, I'm just going to keep a positive attitude on the issue.
