This is all the stuff I've found that Dr. G has never mentioned to me, and things wrong in the medical paper work. I'm seriously considering going for another opinion.
Back in August 2015, when my lung issues first started, and Dr. Eye said I had pneumonia. I distinctly remember, by the time I got to Dr. G, 3 days later, I remember him telling it was NOT pneumonia. It was a massive infection, with a large plural effusion (fluid between the lung and the lining) with lower 1/2 of right lung collapsed. All this paperwork says "pneumonia", and isn't pneumonia an infection? I remember him telling me this is not pneumonia.
Second, there's calcified granulomatous disease - And according to Google its, a calcified granuloma is an area of inflammation in tissue that has calcified over time until it has the same density as bone. The most common cause for a granuloma in the lungs is a fungal infection called histoplasmosis. And according to this paper work, I have several granuloma. That's tissue that has hardened to the density of BONE! Wow.....I would like to have known that. I spoke of this in a previous post, but there was more.....
My list of current medications is wrong, even though I can't even count how many times (every time I go there, every time I go to the hospital) that we "fix" it, I honestly don't know what else I can do. They have me on Soma. I haven't taken Soma in two years since I hurt my shoulder and I was only on it for a month. Dr. Eye took me off methotrexate (the cancer drug that scars the lungs and I suspect is the reason I have lung issues) she took me off that as soon as the RA lung was diagnosed, they still have me taking that. And that's just two. Also, my morphine allergy....not here.
Multiple levels of spondylosis in the neck and spine.
This is from one of my CT results and the one that really concerns me:
"There is a precarinal lymph node which measures 6-7mm which is prominent in size. A pre-vascular node also mildly prominent in size measuring 12mm is visible on image 20. There are a few coarse granulomatous along the visceral pleura. There is a focus of calcification in the right hilum. Follow up may be prudent."
Really???? Good grief........I'm going to see another doctor and get another opinion.
Over and over and over again I'm reading "RA-Lung is Stable" Really now? Stable. I just spent 3 days in ICU with pulmonary emobli, I have calcified spots in my lungs, I can no longer sleep lying down because I can't breath. "Stable". My right lung cracked 2 ribs, but I'm "stable". Shit! what does he consider "not stable"???
