Recently I have had 2 CT scans, one with contrast, and they have found a 'shadow' on my lungs. I am now waiting for an appointment with a Lung doctor, the 'C' word has been mentioned!! I have Scleroderma with lung involvement, has anyone else been through something similar? I know I should wait be it is horrible waiting (3 weeks now!) My Lung function test remain the same (crap but stable), I do cough a lot, can have pains in my chest but not constant. How unlucky would I be to get SSC and Lung Cancer!!! all before my 40th birthday, on the plus side, since I got the call to say they had found a shadow I haven't been watching what I eat! it's so liberating, so what if I get fat!!! lol, strange emotions life throws at you.
