Beachmama Posted August 13, 2008 Share Posted August 13, 2008 Hi everyone, I have some news that I am so confused about. Maybe you all can shed some light on it My mom's latest Ct scan came back showing a cloudiness on the lung that had the cancer. The onc said it was a lesion and it was from the radiation and could be infected. (mom has been coughing lately). So, when she went to see the lung specialist, he couldn't make any determination, and didn't prescribe any antibiotics for any possible infection,. He wants to do a broncoscopy! My mom couldn't have this done last time (we tried). She freaked out and wouldn't let them "gag" her with the tube. So, I am just so confused. I thought she was going to get a nebulizer treatment or something. Now, I am scared that the cancer is back and noone's telling us the facts. But the onc originally said she was 99% sure it was just inflammation. I will make some calls tommorrow, but in the meantime, any words of wisdom or experiences you have to share would be appreciated. And don't sugarcoat it for me. Tell me what you think. Thanks!
