JerseyRose Posted July 27, 2020 Share Posted July 27, 2020 Hello everyone. My name is Rose and I just found this website. Five months ago, I was having A gripping pain in the right side of my chest once or twice, every other day. I went to my PCP and she sent me for an ex ray of my ribs. Turns out That no ribs were broken but a nodule showed up on my upper right lung.. After seeing the report my PCP wanted to send me for a CAT Scan. The problem was I don’t have a car and depend on a Fare Free bus service for transportation. During the early days of the Coronavirus Pandemic this bus stopped scheduling rides and I didn’t go for the CAT Scan until just last week. Well my PCP called me after she got my results and told me she wanted me to see a Pulmonologist and an Oncologist but she didn’t tell me how big the nodule was or anything else. I was so shocked by what I heard that I didn’t ask any questions. Today, after waiting a few days and doing some research online, I called my Nurse Practitioner again to ask her a list of questions. She wasn’t in the office today so I left a message to have her call me back. I also live across the street from her office so I’m going to ask for a copy of the Radiologist’s report tomorrow so I have an idea what I’m dealing with. I was wondering if there is a list of questions I can find anywhere online to ask my Pulmonologist and Oncologist at my first office visits? Thanks in advance for your help.By the way, I’m 63 years old and a former 50 year smoker. I quit smoking for 11 months last year, went back to it and just quit again on April 17th.
