Vasculitis

First time I've posted on here, nearly 12 months ago I was diagnosed with lung cancer, this turned out to be a misdiagnosis as it was confirmed in January, this disease can mimic lung cancer if it attacks your lungs, it also attacked my kidneys and sinuses, it's been treated with chemo and various medication, the chemo finished in March but I'm still on all the meds, last ct scan in July has shown significant reduction in the nodules, to the point that they are almost clear. I had not heard of vasculitis before and wanted it made aware on this site

Take care Janet x

Sorry to hear that, I don't know what LAM is, the cyclophosimide treatment I had literally saved my life, I returned to work a couple of weeks after my chemo finished and work just 2-3 days a week now x

I've not heard of vasculitis either but I've read on my CT Scan reports that much of my Bronchiectasis is vascular.

Glad things have improved for you.
