Throwing caution to the winds and hope I'm doing this correctly.
I was dx'ed in Feb. when surgical removal of LUL and biopsy of nodule encased in a benign tumor but no nodes involved and incidentally dx'ed with CLL at that time. No treatment for either dxes but follow-up labs and CT scans by Oncologist. Recent scan showed pneumonia but 3 rounds of Levaquin have not cleared up. PET scan showed activity but again, as pneumonia rather than cancer. She referred me to my pulmonologist.
Recent Bronchoscopy with washing, brushing and biopsies were negative for cancer but waiting on culture results for the pneumonia.
Can I safely rest easy with the above protocol? I'm so sick of being sick. And even sicker of the fear (that I have to hide from my family.)
