I saw my Oncologist today. She did not like the sound of my lungs (I have had a horrible cough since August but so do a lot of people).
She wants to take a closer look at the lymph node in the lung. I don't know anything about my anatomy but I guess there are lymph nodes in the lung.
Anyway, my colonoscopy was great. I thought I was done with tests, which have been going on for a month one after another.
Everyone please say a little prayer. This cough is different than any asthma, bronchitis or cold cough I have had. It feels to stretch from the back of the throat right down to the bottom of my lungs. I am on my second Z pack and taking QVar 85 2 2x. No prednisone because I get thrush. The xray was okay and I just had a CT with contrast but the doctor says this one will just be of the lung area.
I am definitely depressed because I have not felt well enough to return to my main job and my second job which requires me to sing is not going well since I have almost no singing voice for the first time in my life. I resigned but then took my resignation back on Sunday. The music director told me everything is okay and to be patient. I have to be at the cancer center Friday at 3:30 with the scan at 4:00 Eastern Standard.
