I went for my annual check up, mainly to check my pulmonary lung disease and see that my lung function was not deteriorating rapidly and after all the usual spirometry and other tests my consultant said that things were looking good. Now ever since my diagnosis and successful surgery and adjuvant chemo I have never suffered from scanxiety especially as one consultant told me last year that I was cured, although I did say that I preferred to wait for my 5 year NED date before really thinking that was a reality.
Any way after my consultant told me about lung function tests he pulled up the chest x-ray that I had just been taken 30 mins prior and as we looked at it we both noticed almost immediately the 2 shadows on the right lung and my heart sank. He did say that it could be an infection or fluid on the lung and it quite possibly is something like this although I have presented no symptoms to suggest this. So we agreed that I go for a CT scan with contrast next Monday and then CT guided lung biopsy to see if we fully understand what the shadows are. He did go on to say that I was fit enough with good enough lung function to go through further surgery if required but I really don't want to think about that just now.
So I feel like I did over 3 years ago when I was awaiting my CT scan to see what was showing up on my x-ray and the Wheel of Fortune came up with Stage 2b LC.
Here's hoping it's a different outcome this time.
I was actually going to come on to this site anyway this weekend as I just want everyone to have a Merry Xmas and enjoy themselves if at all possible.
