Hi, I'm new to the site.
Quick history: Chest infection started last September, and gradually got worse at Christmas again, then again 2 months ago. GP stated xray clear, and I didn't meet NICE Guidelines criteria for CT scan when I asked for one. And so, after much persuasion (and asking for GMC number) I managed to get a CT scan.
My Gp called on Wednesday to tell me the following from my medical notes which I [and other patients] have online access to. Apparently there aren't any respiratory hospital appt's available at the hospital, and I have to wait until 7th September before they can give me a potential date to see a specialist. Can anyone shed some light on this for me please?
There is evidence of a subpleural nodule measuring 9. 4mm. The, margins are well-defined. This most likely represents a post, infective granuloma, however this is not conclusive on a single, imaging instance., There is a ground glass nodule measuring 3mm in a subpleural location, in the lateral segment of the left lower lobe. This is also most, likely a granulomatous focus., No pulmonary masses evident.,
