berisa Posted November 28, 2003 Share Posted November 28, 2003 Today my Dad went to hospital to meet the oncologist, he said from comparing the X-rays, the shadow on my Dad's lung is bigger than before. My Dad asked him what's that and he replied "don't know", he said this could be anything like tumor or radiation pnuemonitis or scars, and he seemed not really care about this shadow as he said even in many patients, like SARS patients who were recovered, they also found shadow on their lungs because of the lung damage. Then, my Dad asked for CT Chest Scan and he replied that this is not necessary as even CT scan cannot tell the truth. Oh, man!!! How come such kind of doctors exist ?? Is that only related to LIMITED RESOURCES only?? The oncologist gave 2 weeks Prednisone to my Dad (1 tablet each, twice a day) and ask him come back to see him after Christmas holiday (5 weeks later from now). He also referred my Dad to eye specialist coz my Dad has blur vision and he doesn't think that it is the side effect of taking Prednisone. Buddies, if you are suffering / were suffered from Radiation Pnuemonitis, can you tell me what symptoms you have? Can you tell me what the X-rays look like? What does the shadow look like?
