I went for the last appt prior to surgery on the 7 th with OBG/ONC and asked her to confirm in person that my CT results were negative for problems since a nurse had given me the info verbally over the phone. She confirmed with a smile and asked if I would like a copy and jumped up to get one.
After she handed it to me she continued on talking about the surgery, I was glancing over the report and got a cold chill. Clearly right there the report said I had a lung nodule and I should get a full Lung CT scan since this one just showed the lower portion of my lungs. When I got my voice back I showed it to her and asked her why she didn't mention it. She said not to worry that that didn't have anything gynecological to do with it and later after my surgery I could call my GP and schedule another scan if I wanted to.
This is suppose to be the best doctor around. I had two other doctors say that she is the best in town. I am devastated especially after reading on the Internet that these nodules are often cancer after age 50 or older. I turned 50 in February. I put a call in to my GP and he is to call back tomorrow. I don't think I want to go into surgery without knowing the whole picture. Now this may cause me to push the surgery off and also go to jail for being mean mouthed to a certain surgeon. I was so lady like this afternoon but now feel a little like Thelma and Louise! SNIFF!
