"Well, She Did Smoke"
Last updated: February 2023
I asked for a CT scan
Just before Thanksgiving in 2016, I coughed up blood. I made an appointment and had a chest x-ray. It didn't show anything. I asked for a CT scan. They found something and after a bronchoscopy, I was diagnosed. I had nodules throughout both lungs.
Questions about smoking history
No evidence of disease
Well after my round of chemo my doctor figured I might not have stage 4 after all. In June 2017, I had a lobectomy of my right lower lobe. According to the pathology report, the cancer was contained in the tumor.
It is now June 2020. I just had my 6 month CT scan. No evidence of disease.
