Hello, I had an operation back in September for the removal of a lump in my lung. this proved to be Silicosis. Since then I have had three X Rays all showing an oblong shadow over the operation area, this hasn't altered at all during this time, it is in the same place and is the same size. I had a CT Scan this week and the doctors have told me it is just fluid, and not to worry they will see me in 6 months. Well, all the articles I have read say that it is a worry. I want to go on holiday in a few weeks and this involves a 7-hour flight to a warm dry country. (Dubai). I haven't asked the insurance company yet if this is OK but the Doctors say there is no reason why I shouldn't go. I am quite well otherwise, coughing a bit but nowhere near what I used to like. So the question is should I go or should I stay. lol I really could do with a holiday as could my long-suffering wife.
