 it was NOT good.

* i have had a cough that won't go away..pneumonia twice..and something show up on a xray. I was referred out and had that appt today

I get there and head to xray..he found something on the xray he did and ordered a catscan.

There is something in my lung.

He wouldn't speculate and started asking me other questions. I told him that in August they thought i had a thryoid problem because i was constantly fatigued, having weight issues, but when i was referred off base to a endocrinologist the panel that was done came back good.

I also always run a low grade fever..i have had for about 6 months. I am not sure why. The on base doctor said it was probably allergies.

But with all that and the thing on my catscan and xrays he wants to do a lung tissue biopsy.

He said at my age and even though i was around smokers its probably nothing at all.

However it could be anything including cancer..he doesn't want to go that far but did say that if it turns out it is in fact cancer i probably have it someplace else. Its very unlikely that it orignated in my lung. But he doesn't want to go there..he is going to do a sleep study to make sure all the other symptoms aren't cauesd by sleep apnea..a cold air study and the biopsy.

He said for me not to be too concerned it probably is nothing..and more than likely it won't be anything to bad..but he said he just wants to be sure.

:(

So please pray. Hopefully i'll know within a few weeks..

it must be a very scary time for you and your family.  I hope everything turns out for the best that it can.  Keep positive to the best of your ability in the coming weeks and find comfort/support when you need it.  Sorry to hear of the developments...

Praying for you that they find the answers, and that it is something minor.
