When they are looking at something that isn't good. I have bronchitis. My daughter had it before I did. I have been coughing and hacking for three weeks thinking I could beat it and pretty much avoided the GP. This morning I decided that I have had enough I ran to urgent aid to get some antibotics. Because I told him I had been sick for 3 weeks he made me do a chest x-ray. I told him I really didn't want one(I glow) - I knew it was bronchitis. He got kind of stern and told me that I was going to have one. I have a mass in my lung.(Bronchitis too) He said it could be an infection. Yea, like I believe that. So Monday I get to make phone calls and get another ct done. Keep me in your prayers.- Judy

Well that's what I am praying it is. I am sorry that you are going through this stress. I know it's scary and I will pray for strength and calmness for you. Also praying that your bronchitis heals quickly.

Please keep us posted. Sending you hugs-

<3 sweet

Judy,
It is cold and flu season, so let's think horses and not zebras. Know that I too am thinking of you and sending you my best energy (aka prayers). Please keep us in the loop.

Hi, Judy. Best wishes and prayers headed your way. I'm sure we all know how hard it is to not think the worst when something like this happens since that is human nature. However, I was told "A lump is just a lump until it's something else". So, best of luck to you and try to not worry too much about this. I also have a very important meeting this week with a chemo onc and I am on pins and needles as well. So, let's both get good news this week.

I know it sounds bad but hang in there until you get more test done as x-rays don’t always tell the true story. I like everyone here will keep you in extra prayer.

My last chest x ray they said they saw a nodule and so for a week I thought I had lung cancer. not much fun. They sent me to get a CT scan and it came back normal. What they saw on my lung was just a shadow that happens quite often. Keep positive,

You most probably do have an infection going on and it is not C. I imagine that cancer survivors go through this every time something happens. Hope you get the CT scan soon and can put your mind to rest.

We have a copy that we are dropping off with the oncologist tommorow. Looked at them - do not know what I am looking for. Sent some of the jpgs to my brother (cardiologist) thinking he might know what he is looking at. They are taking a long time getting to him. The Oncologist will call if she sees anything. I really don't feel any anxiety anymore.
Thanks for the prayers - Judy

The spot did show up on the CT scan. I was really praying it was just a shadow. We are going to the oncologist***now. The best case senerio is that I have aspiration pneumonia.
Keep me in your prayers - Judy

Going in for a PET scan - they will schedule it tomorrow (Seeing Doctors on Friday always gets complicated). It is amazing how crappy one can feel after hearing a little discouraging news. Keep me in your prayers - Judy

and so does discouraging news. I hope the news tomorrow is better. No matter what, however, remember you beat this once and you can again if you need to. I just hope you don't need to.

We'll be thinking of you tomorrow.

Judy, will definitely send up some of my best prayers for you. I have been scared before, too. I am hoping this is just one of those times, again, when it turned out to be something else.
