Lung & Respiratory Disorders / COPD Message Board


Lung & Respiratory Disorders / COPD Board Index


I was having the CT done as a follow up because of some pains around the rib cage...also 3 months ago I had a scan that showed benign nodules in my lungs, I believe they were 2-3mm's..I have a great doctor that likes to follow up...There was no plueral effision or liquid found the lungs...also this time they said the nodules were gone...I should add I had the first scan done 2 weeks after I quit smoking...

I should add that I frequntly walk and jog at a nearby park, usually a combination of 4 miles without any problems...I also just got off the treadmill...doing 20 minutes or walking and jogging without any shortness of breathe other than ofcourse when running at 6 miles an hour for 4 minutes...

I am assuming there could have been an error in the test, I should also add when the nurse first did it she waited to long to get it to the lab...she came back again and had a hard time getting to the artery...

I just would have figured that a CT scan would have shown something in regards to problems with the lungs...even the doctor was baffled by the results, thats why they put me on the electric monitor for an hour to make sure, and the reading was 96-98 the entire time...vs I think 90-91 they saw when the lab did the test...
