2 days ago · what is ground glass on a ct lung scan in Lung Health

@chris8515– Hello again Chris. You really don't need one more thing do you? Why did your doctor order a CT scan ? I'm assuming that it was a pulmonologist? You said that you have had CT scans that show GGN- ground glass nodules. Are you being followed by a pulmonologist? GGN can be a lot of things and if more than one shows up, or grows than it really needs to be followed.
Here is some information https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6131181/
I hope that your headaches are better. Are you feeling better?

@bdpp– Oh my word life just doesn't give us what we expect or want a lot of the time. I'm a lung cancer survivor of 22+ years and every time I get another lesion I feel this way too. PTSD is so different for everyone. I'll attach my blog post about mine. PTSD is a lot of depression and anger. I'm so so happy that your PET scan came back clean and that you want to get going. Your anger and tears might just be a delayed reaction to your last cancer. I've had 2 surgeries and after the last one I became more and more depressed and eventually house bound from depression. So go get on the road and have fun now, style your new hair in a spunky style and go for it! I firmly believe that being active can be more beneficial than anything. So when do you hit the road?

@jgpolachek– Good morning. I would just like to remind you that Mayo Connect is a public forum and things that you buy for personal use maybe would be better put in a private message to someone. Thank you for your information.

@maone – I have been thinking about what a struggle it must be for your family to make a decision of whether you will try and find him or just trust his word, that some how he is trying to protect you. Do you have any idea of what that might be?

@oliviah9 – Welcome to Mayo Connect. I'm very glad that you have read the threads about SOB. It's pretty scary when you find that what was natural, like a deep breath, is suddenly gone. Have you had any chest Xrays or CT scans? I believe that it would benefit you to see a pulmonologist and a GI person. I know that when I'm on vacation I eat more than usual and things that are not as healthy for me. Perhaps some backed up on you and you ingested it. This can happen in your sleep too. Do you think that your Md's will give you a recommendation?
