CT Scan Results: Looking good for the holidays


Recommended Posts

Had my check-up scan this morning and the results just arrived in my chart. Phew-- free for another two months! Here are the highlights:

No enlarged nodes.

No pneumothorax or pleural effusion

Minimal hazy groundglass opacities (All that prior damage is healing!)

No suspicious nodules or masses.

No bronchiectasis

Normal soft tissues of the chest wall

All good stuff. Even the question I have involves the word, "stable": "Stable moderate fullness and atelectasis in the perihilar portion of the right lower lung involving the right middle and lower lobes."  It's the first time there's been any reference to atelectasis. Definitely something to chat with the oncologist about when I see her tomorrow. Or the onc. radiologist. 

Going to have a cup of good coffee and look out the window to breathe a big sigh of thanksgiving. 

Hope you're all doing well.

Chest CT with contrast every two months; MRI (brain) every 2 months. 

I mostly feel relieved, and very grateful. 

Thanks, @LilyMir. I hope some of your situations are settling down….
