i have systemic scleroderma and sjogren's. I had a CT done that was a follow-up to one done in Feb. The one in Feb indicated a 4 x 5 nodule that the oncologist wanted to see how it was. Well my local general practitioner called because the oncologist won't be here until next Wednesday.
He said the lung nodule doesn't appear on the CT but it is now a shadow. He went on to say that my lungs are ALOT worse than they were in Feb. He said that I have a great deal of ground glass. I asked him what that meant and he said I should discuss it with the oncologist when he calls next Wednesday. I tried and persisted to get more info and that's all he would say.
Well I googled "ground glass in lungs" and I am not at all comforted in what I'm reading. Does anyone have any experience, knowledge or information with this. It will be a long worrisome wait until next Wednesday.
