... smoker. I have not had any illnesses involving my lungs in a quite a while. However, I did have pneumonia as a child and wonder if that could have left scarring on my lungs? ... (0 replies)
... A new update. PCP did a peak flow test. Dr. Let me try 6 times and as we know they take your top 3 numbers (which were my last) my lungs are at 70%. It was a little bit of a surprise to me. The only things I have noticed is cleaning products and sprays bothering my lungs. I am just waiting for my scan. I want a diagnosis already ;) happy Friday to all. (13 replies)
... So sorry you are having these health issues. My lung problems were also caught during another procedure. I was having a CT of my kidneys and my nodules showed up. Jump forward about 7 yrs later and I now see a great pulmonary doctor at UNC CHAPEL HILL in NC. I have COPD and was just diagnosed with MAC lung disease. I do think you should see a pulmonary specialist. I would not... (13 replies)

... ng to have my follow up lung scan later this month. Recently I have noticed sprays such as cleaning products and nail polish etc all bother me. I feel them in my lungs at times causing me to cough. This is something new. I also have a visit with the Pulmonary Dr. For a PFT after my scans. ... (13 replies)
... Thanks SherryWA. :) I am thankful. Just wondering about the thymus showing up in the scan. Hopefully it is nothing. (13 replies)
... That is good news! They will probably put you on inhaled meds like Spiriva and/or Symbicort and maybe a nebulizer treatment once a day. I would not worry. When my function was at 70% and my nodules were unchanged that's what they did and just kept a watch on my functions and did an xray once a year and a CT scan when functions went down. They use to do CT scans once a year but... (13 replies)
... Ok the good news is that my nodules are the same. I have to follow up in 6 months. The weird news is they saw what appears to be my thymus. It was seen on the previous scan. Supposedly the thymus should be microscopic by adulthood. Hhhhmmmm? Pulmonary visit in October to figure out my 70% lung function. (13 replies)
... Thanks SherryWA so much for your support. My hubby and I hope to move to NC or SC one day. Maybe I will end up with great doctors like yours. :) I will keep you posted and all the best with your health. Prayers! (13 replies)
... Hi, I'm a newbie too. This is my first post. I too have scarring and nodules in my lungs and they were first discovered by accident during a kidney CT scan. That was back in 2005. I was told to stay away from sprays, smoke etc. ... (13 replies)
... the board. I went for a ct scan to Ck on a clogged artery in my neck. Doctor decided to do a chest ct scan in addition to the neck. Chest ct scan showed 6 X 8 mm scarring and several nodules up to 4 X 6 mm. My PCP states we will follow up in 6 months with another ct scan. Should I push for one sooner? ... (13 replies)
... e should cancel it purely for the expense. If it was even a hundred bucks sure, we'd go ahead with it just to be on the safe side and see if there's any signs of scarring in there, but we might need that money for a REAL emergency. ... (6 replies)

... Hello, First I want to thank you for even reading this. I have medical problems but not one really has to do with me breathing. I have suffered from bronchio asthma as a child and every year around the winter time i would get a cold along with asthma and it usually goes away like any cold. I have not been sick in a long time with asthma but when I got it it was hard to deal... (1 replies)
... Generally the clots come from the leg veins. The scarring might increase your risk of the clot settling in the lungs if it actually forms, but I can't see how it would increase the risk of a clot forming in the first place. ... (5 replies)

Lung scarring

... Hi John, I also have scarring (pulmonary fibrosis) since six years ago. I was pretty good, but slower like you said, for 4.5 years when I developed pneumonia in both lungs and got some more scarring and now Im on O2 24/7. It helps. The problem you have is not lung volumn but diffusion - how much o2 is actually getting into your blood. They should do a lung test on you that... (1 replies)

... Cassandra, Is the white spot something reported when looking at cat scan results? If so, it could be many things. If they are referring to it as a nodule, it could be scarring, atelectasis (an area of collapsed lung), even a shadow. Most CT's will show an aproximate size of the area that looks suspicious. It may help to ask your health care provider some more questions... (1 replies)
