I had a CT scan done about 2-3wks ago. About a week later my Pulmonologist said the found a 1.2cm lymph node and other particles in my right lung. He said he wanted me to go for another CT scan in six months.
I was in the car at the time he phoned me and i could barely hear him, so I called back to ask additional questions and ge was out of the office until the following week. Then, instead of the doctor calling me, his staff called and said he wanted me at the hospital that day for another CT scan? When I asked why, she stated she would contact the doctor and get back to me. The next day his personal nurse phoned and said to get the test dine as soon as I get back in town, next week. I called and scheduled the exam immediately following the phone call from the nurse.
I'm quite concerned that my follow up went from six weeks to right now! No one will tell me anything and the doctor still hasn't called me, per my request, to answer my questions.
Can someone tell me if this is something I should be worried about? I think the doctor hasn't phoned me because I'm out of town and he doesn't want to get into specifics until I'm home.
Any helpful input would be greatly appreciated!
