CT lung cancer screening

I was kidding about the herbal medicine. I'm sorry but my sarcasm is the result of my frustration with our medical system- its inability to effectively address illnesses like emphysema and COPD. I was pointing out the similarity between the scam artist and "legitimate medicine" where both seek your money and neither delivers a cure.
At what point do I withdraw my trust from a system that's only function is diagnosing conditions they're helpless to treat? Speaking as a patient whose doctors charge him but can't help him, I have the right to make light of the situation. Maybe most of us should be less solicitous and more demanding of our medical system (I realize some of us have survived cancer because of our doctors). They are well paid. They need to do better.

Oh @merpreb I think the time frames are confusing. I understood it takes time for the infection to clear up. That explains the x-ray I had several weeks after the pneumonia. What I'm talking about is the x-ray I'm having this week that is 4 months later.The doc is looking to see if that area is gone. If it isn't, after 4 months, I can conclude the antibiotics didn't work.
