I haven't posted a message since August after posting about my CT scans showing lung nodules. My heart goes out to all of you who are going through the difficult times from these cancers. I took your advice and went to a lung specialist who reviewed the scans and he takes an approach of every 3 months do a scan. I just had my 2nd scan on Nov. 5th and have a follow up with the Dr. on Nov 13th, which is when I find out where it stands. But this time they did the CT without contast (the I V) as sometimes with contrast shows false results as it shows any broken blood vessels, etc. So I am hoping that the new one they found in my right lung (5mm x 2mm) doesn't show up this time. It was indeterminate the last time. The 7mm one seemed stable and hopefully, none of that has changed. I have changed my diet to one of no red meats (rarely) more fruits and veggies and vitamin supplements. I will keep everyone in my prayers and will let you know how my visit goes. I have confidence in him as he is going to keep a close watch on it due to the cancer history in my family. Makes me feel as though I am not just pushed aside as unimportant until the nodules get larger. Thanks to all of you on this site...it is so good to know that there is support out there. God bless all of you.

I am sorry you went through this but I am wondering what your outcome was. I just noticed your post is 3 years ago. I hope all is ok.
