Well after a beautiful six weeks of feeling g well on methodrexate and putting all my worries behind me I saw the consultant today. This was great as I usually see the registrar but this guy is very esteemed and has been a consultant for years.
We went through everything and as an afterthought I mentioned that I had noticed huge lymph nodes under my right armpit in addition to the reactive ones under my left armpit that have been there a year!
I had a CT PET scan in April partly to rule Out more sinister reasons for
The outrageous weight loss and night sweats, and it came back as consistent with the rheumatoid, so
I stopped thinking about it.
Now, I have a new clutch of them, really quite large, and the doc has referred me for a chest X-ray and ultrasound.
He didn't seem massively concerned - said that they felt mobile - so I am not freaking out, but I have to say it would have been nice to walk out of there without a new thing on my mind!!!!!!! You know what I mean? Always something bubbling away - it seems such a long time since my health was something I didn't need to think about!!
Anyway, was just wondering if anyone out there had any lymph node experience to share. ( positive if possible!!!)
