Went to the pulmonary doctor today.... Had blood work and CT Scan of the lungs done 1st....

Good news and bad news...

Good news.... The spot on my lung that wasn't cancer has decreased in size... Nothing else new on the CT Scan.... Blood work was within normal limits... Respiratory infection I've been fighting since last winter seems to be finally gone...

Bad news.... Lung function has decreased from 50% to 39%.... Don't know why other that the respiratory infection I've been fighting since back in the winter...

Added some new medication and hope it brings my lung function back up some.... Still on oxygen all the time... 2 LPM at rest... 3 LPM while doing anything and while sleeping... See him again in 2 months....

So we'll keep doing what we've been doing and hope this new med does some good.... :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
