Does anyone out there know if scar tissue from radiation and/or surgery can cause wheezing. I am concerned about lung noise but just had a CT scan in October and Dr. said it was clear. Am very confused, not to mention worried Thanks for any information.

    Grammy - It does feel so good to get good scan results doesn't it? Congrats! I asked my doctor the same question a few months ago,he said " because of the scar tissue it is always going to be a sensitive area." I notice if there's alot of smoke, or some kind of a strong chemical in the air it will get me coughing pretty bad. When I get a cold the coughing part will hang on a little longer than normal. But as long as we continue to get great scan results we can handle it....

    loulou-thanks for the encouragement. This cancer business is so scary living between tests. When we are in active treatment living from one appointment to the next you somehow feel safe. Once that is over it gets real hard again, at least for me. Thank you. Grammy

    Grammy-I agree, but I have to say it gets easier each time. My last couple of mri's and ct scans I didn't even feel it was neccessary to have them (of course I did have them), but I wasn't as nervous. But each time I get a new pain I think, what's that! But for the most part I am getting on with my new and better life. I don't ever want to forget or stop thinking of cancer, but I don't want to let it stop me from making a better life for me and my family.

    Stay strong, and believe you are cured!

    Hi there RRDAVIS67.Was pleased to find you on this discussion group. I just saw my Dr. 2 weeks ago and I ask him about lung noises. He said anyone with lung resection and radiation will always have lung noises. I was pleased to hear that because it seems to come and go and of course I would get upset always thinking the worst. Do you have small cell or non small cell lung cancer?
