JerseyRose Posted August 8, 2020 Share Posted August 8, 2020 (edited) I finally have my first PET CT scan scheduled for August 17th, followed by appointments with another Pulmonologist and Oncologist on August 24 and 26th respectively. I saw my first Pulmonologist last week and he is sending me for a TB test and breathing tests, which I’ll be getting before my PET CT scan. I also had to wear a finger oxygen level sensor overnight and take a 6 minute walk in his office to check my pulmonary function. The fact that I don’t have a car and have to rely on the senior bus service to get to my appointments means I have to schedule everything around the times the bus gets into towns and returns to my home. That why I’m waiting so long for everything. At least I was really happy with the first Pulmonologist I saw. He was so nice and friendly and took the time to answer all my questions. He kept telling me that what is showing up on my CT scan doesn’t necessarily mean I have lung cancer, which helped me feel a little more relaxed.. He also told me that depending on what my PET CT scans shows , I may need to have a Bronchoscopy next. I’ll be so glad when this waiting game is over and I get a diagnosis. Then I can focus on doing whatever the doctors recommend and go with the flow.
