Just when you think...

I went to my urologists office the other day, and it was supposed to be my last visit for a year. I was supposed to hear that, correction...I wanted to hear that everything is alright. I wanted to hear the words that I don't have to have another CT scan for a year. Instead I was told that they found an abnormality on my chest CT. He wanted me to get another CT scan in three months, but stupidly I agreed with the doctor and told him that I had not been feeling well at the time of the scan. He said I may have had a pneumonia. He moved it up to six months. Now I'm playing the waiting game again. My mother told me not to worry and not to stress, but I'm not so sure I can. I don't know if a pneumonia can last weeks, I do know that my chest hurts on the left side. It feels better than before, but it feels kind of heavy, and it hurts when I breathe. I'm not as stressed as I am scared. Its kind of ironic that now I desperately want a CT scan..

Did your chest hurt before you spoke to the doctor about the scan..? 'cause maybe.. you're experiencing a panic attack because you're thinking about everything that *could* be wrong.

Sending good thoughts and vibes your way! Hope it turns out to be nothing too serious. In the meantime, listen to your mother. :) No stressing!

Thanx Emily I'm trying to. I do have panic attacks Trish, but I didn't that day. I had had this problem for awhile with my chest. I think it is my lung, but I never went to the doctor because I had the CT scan done and I just saw an eye specialist.

The pneumonia virus can last for weeks and cause a lot of pain in the lung and chest area. I'm sorry this has happened to you Charles and I'm sending good vibes your way hoping that there's nothing to worry about. Nice to see you back posting, I haven't posted for a long time. Jeannette xx
