CT results

Postby susie0915 » Thu Jan 11, 2018 8:03 am

Just received my CT results of lung. No change in 4mm nodule which is good news. Also, no progression in inflammation or scarring doctors feel is caused by
chemo or auto immune disorder which is also good news. Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers. You all understand how stressful having scans can be. I can relax now and enjoy my ordinary days for at least 6 months until the next scan.
