Good News from Doctors

Okay.......I had a kidney stone but the c-scan was "alarming" to the doctor. I've had some tests and another scan (fasting kind with the dye).

NO CANCER!!!! It appears that part of my lung never finished forming, so the original scan was showing a huge black/blank area on my lower left lung. Without the dye c-scan contrast, it was hard to tell what it was. It appears to be nothing because the lower part of the lung doesn't exist.

Let's hope I learned a life lesson and don't take my health for granted. I'm 48 and I do have 2 friends in the last stages of cancer, so I feel VERY grateful.

(weight has kind of stalled but my "fat" seems to be re-arranging itself. EVERYONE comments on my weight loss)

Wonderful news - and what a way to find out part of your lung is missing! whoa. Hope the kidney stone is resolved too.

I'm sure you're relieved after that scare. I'm so happy it wasn't what they originally thought.

Pixie I so delighted that there was nothing nastier there. I am glad that you are slimmer even if the scales aren't moving for a while.

How is the stone now? Take care of yourself, I hope you are no longer in pain.

Thanks everyone!!! I just took the "real" Pixie (my miniature schnauzer) to the vet. She has to have surgery for a KIDNEY STONE in her bladder. She's been sick for a few weeks and the vet was thinking it might be a tumor.

I have NO CLUE what is in our water (& probably don't really want to know!)
