USPC-hysterectomy next week. My mom had a CT scan which showed no apparent masses outside of the uterus, which was music to my ears. Her chest x=ray showed a shadow that her doctor thinks may be pneumonia. She had a cough and sore throat a week ago. They are now ordering a CT Scan of her chest to rule this out prior to surgery next week. I'm crossing my fingers it is nothing. Did most of you have CT scans of your chest? My mom's insurance denied it when first requested. They are approving it now based on shadow that showed up on x-rays.
