Well, I am now home after spending Saturday night in the ER and transfered to a hospital room. Things started getting scary on Sat. around 10 pm. My chest was hurting and I didn't know if it was related to the transfusions. So we called the doc and he said to go to the ER right away. No fun!
They did every test including a ct angio scan. And decided after the scan to keep me. So hubby went home and I went to a real nice private room. The nurses were wonderful and it helped me to be less scared.
The possible bad news from the ct scan is that the stable lung nodual has now grown. I can't decide if this is good to know or not. I probanly would not have had a lung scan for a long while, since I am still recovering from all this drama/trama. So now I have another thing to follow up. I knew it had been there and it had remained the same for so long. Hopefully it doesn't mean much. I am trying to be positive on this. Althoughthe thyroid cancer loves to hide in the lungs... Lame
Anyways, the pain in my chest finally lessened and the other pain was controled well with the iv meds.
The doc told me that they do not think it was a heart attack since the heart enzymes looked good as well as the ekgs. He said that they are unsure what is/was causing the horrible pain. But if it returns, for me to not try and tough it out, but get to the ER pronto. I promised I would do that, so they let me come home.
So that has been my not so fun weekend. I didn't take hubbys ipad or even my phone, so I had no way to let you know how I was doing.
Hugs to all of you
