My doctor said I had a mass in my neck. now, that’s pretty scary. a mass. wow…..
so, i went for the cat scan and waited like a good patient through the weekend. It was a rough weekend. I was worried and on edge to say the least. Monday comes around and the doctor says…well, were not worried about the neck. were worried about a spot on the lungs we see.
Woah, bout blow me for a loop. WHAT? The lungs??!! The nurse is defensive and vague leading me to wonder what is really on that report. So i drive to the drs office and demand a copy of my report. and it says there’s something on my lungs and my neck is swollen. ok….
I have two choices here. the dr recommends a ($45)pulmonologist. which would mean a second ($320) cat scan. and another visit to the ($45)pulmonologist. hummmmmm….or if i visit the er my co pay is $65 dollars and i get it all done in one shot. No brainer. off to the er. The drs knew me there because of john john….thank the good Lord and took care of me.
The long of the short is. I have and old virus living in my body that flared up again. it’s not contagious but i had it 9 years ago. apparently i have become so rundown that it has taken over. thus the swelling of my neck in a massive way. the lungs are clear as per the second whole lung ct scan. so, an overzealous interpreter had a field day on my first scan. the end. im fine. except for the Epstein barr virus reincarnate…
