Dona Posted March 20, 2022 Share Posted March 20, 2022 Hi everyone. I haven't posted for awhile but have questions for those who have experienced pnemonitis. I was dxd last July with Stage3 NSCLC. I've completed 6 weeks of daily radiation and 5 rounds of low dose chemo concurrently. Subsequent scan in Jan showed either abscess from infection or pnemonitis. I was put on steroids for a week to no avail. Bronchoscopy performed to determine if abscess was infection. Finding was negative so onco is saying pnemonitis. My onco was reticent about rxing more steroids stating it can cause new nodules to form? I did have a nodule appear in left lung which I am going to have biopsied soon. There are 3 small nodules in rlung showing minor growth Questions for the group 1. Has anyone heard that steroids can cause lung nodules 2. Had Covid in Jan. Could this have caused new nodule in llung 3. Other remedies for pnemonitis? Coughing is pretty severe at times, even causing vomiting occasionally. I have new onco that is very impressive on paper, but my visits just feel transactional and not holistic enough for me, and I'm left feeling I'm not getting the whole picture. May be changing that real soon. Any feedback is appreciated. Thx! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
