My journey started with what I thought was a heart attack. After three days in the hospital and OK on my 39 yr old heart...I was adivsed that numerous "nodules" showed up on the CT scan. These chest pains, nodules around my heart/lungs along with horrible night sweats, have my doctor wanting to test for HD. He is consulting with radiological surgeon to see if biopsy is an option. I am scared to death not knowing what to expect. Will they have to cut my chest open? Can they do blood tests? I am seeing an oncologist as well due to extremely elevated WBC and Platelets. Does anyone have info or questions that I should be asking?
