Please don't be afraid as I was 4 years ago when they tole me I had a spot on the tip of my left lung. The doc had me so scared, he said I had smoked so many years that I probably had cancer..scared,,boy was I. Well that was my mitake. This doc did not even go back 3 years and look at an old MRI which showed some scar tissue from a pneumonia 3 years earlier,,,so he done the surgery. From that surgery, I have been in 4 years of chronic pain, until I am considered disabled.and have been experimented on with all kinds of drugs for pain, most of which I was allergic to.
I can do no housework, nothing at all. I sit up in a hospital bed to sleep. I have burning stinging pressure inside of me , which is unreal. It never stops. Nothing helps me at all and have had nerve blocks, 9 of them, tens machine, bio feedback.
So PLEASE ,,,do not take less then 3 opinions by 3 docs at least before you let them start cutting on you. Had this doc been on the ball, he would have looked back at the old x ray and seen this was just scar tissue from pneumonia, and I could kick myself for not remembering,,,No more knifes for me!!!!
