I can't believe they wouldn't suggest a biopsy that's ridiculous...I hope the specialist works out
Tammy that is ridiculous I hope you can find someone that will take a better look at it.
Is the 3 months because of a waiting period for the test or something?? That is so annoying.
I'm sorry hun
I don't know how many of you read my post about what the Dr. had determined I had.So, I will add that info here also.
I went to see my Dr on Saturday Jan.12. I was having BAD chest pain and actually thought I was having a heart attack.He determined I had Costochondritis http://www.emedicinehealth.com/costo...rticle_em.htm.He put me on Tylenol 3's for the pain.They did VERY little for the pain.So, I called him back and he told me to come in again(Jan.17th).Because the pain was still severe, and moved to the right side and then into my back--he ordered a x-ray.So, I went in and got that done on the same day.I called him the next day, to see if he had the results.He hadn't gotten them yet, but said as soon as he did-he would call.ABout 5 min. later, he called.The Radiologist called him hisself and told him the results.They did NOT find anything on my left side (the side that was hurting the most),but they DID find something.On my right lung,the size of about 2 inches-they found a spot.The Radiologist told my Dr, that THEY are requiring me to have a CT scan to determine what the spot is.It is something that is causing them some concern.It could be ANYTHING from scar tissue to Cancer. If it is scar tissue,then I will be required to have another CT scan in 3-6 months after the first one....to insure it hasn't gotten bigger.If it is Cancer, then we decide what course to take.
I am scared out of my mind right now!!! If it's not to much to ask, can you all spare some prayers/vibes/wishes this way? Your support has gotten us through some VERY rough times in the past.
I will update as soon as I know when the CT scan is, and then when I get the results.I will either post, or have crazyforinfo or Troutsmom post for me, as we talk every day.
HUGS to all!!!!
