Hi, First let me say I have bee a smoker for 32 years. recently dull pain in chest area and accross top of shoulder blades,Had chest x-ray in Feb, showed scar in right Apex, Dr. said normal? (Chest X-ray at Pre-surgical testing in Nov. Clear)He said I must have had an infection at one time. 2 weeks later and a Normal stress test, same pain he then sent me for a CT scan W/ contrast results were and I quote...."There are mild to moderate bullous Emphysematous changes about the lung apices, more prominenet on the right side that the left. there is slight nodularity along the posterior pleural surface of the right upper lobe, extending toward the right apex, at the level of the posterior segment of the right upper lobe. There are minimal sites of parenchymal scarring in the region of the inferior lingular and right middle lobe. there is probable minimal platelike atelectasis perhaps admixed with dependent pulmonary blood flow posteriorly at the level of the posterior cosrophrenic sulci." Pulminoligist can't see me for 3 weeks,I am Going crazy, I am hoping someone can explain what all this means and Why a Dr. would call these findings "NORMAL"
