perihilar infiltrate

Posted by joelars @joelars, Mar 23, 2019

I was recently released from hospital with pneumonia. The chest x-ray showed a right perihilar infiltrate. Anyone know what this means?

thank you, that was very kind.

If you don't mind sharing, what do you guys/girls tell yourself after getting "the diagnosis"? Maybe it will help me because I can't think of anything inspiring to tell myself.

Hi Jeanette, I have great news-no cancer! There is a problem but it is relatively minor considering what I was expecting: I have an antibiotic resistant infection in my right lung. My doc wants to wait 2 weeks and re-x ray. If he doesn't like what he sees I may need surgery (he wasn't very clear on that next step). Still, I'll take that diagnosis over a tumor anyday.
Thank you for your concern.
