Asthma / Pulmo Schedules Chest CT Scan
Many of you have been quite helpful to me this far as I’ve struggled with an Asthma dx, and most recently clear, sticky, excess phlegm with limited cough. I spoke to my pulmonologist and now he has scheduled me for a CT scan (I wasn’t expecting this as a next step). Any thoughts on what he might be after (I’m getting concerned)? I’ve had two recent, clear chest x-rays, spirometry in normal ranges, oxygen levels are always good, and I’ve responded reasonably well to the asthma treatment (with this lingering and annoying phlegm issue being whats burdening me now). I suspect he may be chasing bronchiectasis, but who knows. My Pulmonologist is very reputable (I feel I am lucky to get him), he’s just low on words/explanation, yet high on action. I’d greatly appreciate anyone’s thoughts on the CT scan here. Regards.
