In the hospital 6 days
Yup, you read it right! I had been sick for almost two weeks when I finally visited my doctor who has been treating my asthma. So they did some blood tests and a chest x-ray. The x-ray revealed a large gray mass in my left lung, 4x8 cm. So off I went to the hospital to find out what it was. Top of the list was TB or cancer. At the hospital they ran all these tests and at this point, all my tests for TB have come back negative. A CT scan seemed to indicate that the mysterious mass was not cancer, yay! They still are not ruling out TB or cancer 100% but they are leaning more towards thinking it is an infection of some sort and are treating it with antibiotics. I'll have to do some follow up tests and visits to see how I am progressing. So, needless to say, please keep me in your prayers, okay? Thanks!
