Fuzzy Posted December 3, 2020 Share Posted December 3, 2020 I finished my chemo ( carboplatin) and radiation for my adenocarcinoma of my right lung ( stage IIIa) in August and a PET scan in September showed no evidence of disease. the only stiff seen was where I’d had the surgery, but the lymph node that had lit up was dead. I was thrilled! a bit over a month later, I coughed up and there was a *tiny* bit of blood in my sputum. Bit much...a very small amount. I saw the doc and she ordered a ct scan with contrast. It showed a 0.9 cm x 0.6 cm “nodular opacity” on my anterior upper left lobe. From the report: “New 0.9 x 0.6 cm nodular opacity in the left anterior upper lobe, possibly infectious/inflammatory. Background of centrilobular emphysematous changes, with probably unchanged areas of mosaic attenuation since prior PET/CT, allowing for differences in technique. Postsurgical changes relating to prior right lower lobectomy” it scares me this showed up in just more than a month and that’s it’s kind of large. I thought I’d come through this alright, but now I’m really worried. anyone ever had this? thanks! pat. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
