I had my video chat yesterday,long story short it’s a wait & watch situation, the Dr is thinking it’s probably not the bad thing but he wants to take another CT SCAN in 3 months & see what happens. He was very nice & informative & patient & I liked his manner, so I’ll try to be patient & positive 🙏🙏🙏Thanks for being there, it’s nice to be able to to communicate with others on here & not have to announce to personal friends what I’m going through, I’m a private person when it comes to discussing my health

i am glad you are feeling reassured by your visit. If you have concerns while you wait for the next imaging and appointment, we're always here. Waiting can be hard.

@eternity28– I wish that my doctor had said, "it's not the bad thing" however I wouldn't have understood what that meant. Did you? I need for a doctor to be plain-spoken and tell me the truth. Waiting 3 months is prudent if it hasn't grown since the last one.

I must clarify that I am not making fun of the way you phrase your sentences, but rather the lack of clarity from your doctor. I just hate it when medical professionals use roundabout ways to describe a situation. It's lazy and unprofessional on their part. I encourage you to ask as many questions as possible so that you know what you are dealing with. It will help smooth over the waiting time and allow you to feel more in control.

What kind of doctor is he? Pulmonologist? Did he say why he didn't suspect that it was "The bad thing?"
