Hello @woogie. I see you have interest in learning more about ground glass nodules and COVID 19. Several members like @merpreb @hopeful33250 and @chris8515 talk more about ground glass in this discussion:
– What is ground glass on a lung CT scan? https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/what-is-ground-glass-on-a-ct-lung-scan/

Woogie, have you been told that you have ground glass nodules?

@woogie– Hello. I'm sorry that I didn't respond right away. I was recovering from a procedure, unrelated to my lungs. Ground glass is an adjective, describing a cell change in your lungs. You can see a picture of it if you google the term. Someone sometime labeled the appearance of this change because it looks just like ground glass. These changes are probably very common in COVID-19 patients. GG (ground glass) can mean many things. I am not familiar with the history of lung changes in a person with COVID-19. You will need to have your doctors explain this thoroughly to you because you want to know.

By the way, the lingula is the very bottom of your left upper lobe.

Are you currently in the hospital or being treated at home?
