3 nodules on lung(s). 1 at top & 2 at bottom, or vise versa. don't remember if all was on one lung or both. calling back tomorrow with a calmer mind that can think. they said f/u in 6 months. will post ahgain f i hear something different tomorrow.
just got back from ent. heres what was said:
bump on tongue - nothing to worry about but we'll watch it to see f it grows
water & food stay at back of throat instead of going down throat - there is scar tissue there that keeps it from going down. said its like trying to get it thru a funnel. solution: going to do a ct 2 c where the carotted artery is then do a throat dialation and cut the scar tissue to open the throat more. has 2 make sure he doesn't cut that artery.
i learned that when they did my neck disection they removed the right side of my thyroid
stoma bleeds - stoma has been bleeding for no reason. stuff in the stoma comes directly from the lungs, unless the stoma has been scratched, but we don't see a scratch. therefore, he ordered a lung cancer screening which includes a ct of lungs (cost $99 out of pocket, not bad i guess) . he is more concerned about this than the bump on tongue.
i'm not in a panick at this time. i'm just telling myself this is just to be safe. i'm actually feeling pretty good since the tongue bump is nothing to worry about. i was so scared....lol. thank you all for your replies and advice, i greatly appreciated it!!
