Been gone awhile as things have been going great. Sunday morning woke up with a huge cellulitis in my face, neck and upper chest. 4 days of hardcore antibiotics and was discharged on 10 days of oral antibiotics. While I was in, a CT was ordered to see if any of the infection required draining or resection which it did not, now for the SHOCK, the CT showed 3 nodules in my right lower lobe of my lung. One was noted back in March and treated like scar tissue or aspiration. Come forward 5 months and the one from march has grown to 1CM x.6 CM and the other two are so small even a fine needle biopsy would not work. Radiology opinion is they resemble lung cancer. I go to see my thoracic surgeon next thursday as he read the report and scan and says he is not 100% convinced it is Lung CA. (whatever that means)
Looking for someone who has had a simillar experience, and just trying to get they lay of the land. I know nothing about lung ca, but have always had the mindset it meant to go coffin shopping.
Hope there have been as many positive advances with lung CA as there seems to have been with head and neck CA.
Prayers and positive mojo is needed.
