What a hellishingly long 6 weeks wait for the second x-ray then we got a card saying T had a specialist appointment today, 7 and a half weeks wait in total.
So what did she say; well it is his right lung and she said nothing had changed from the initial visit. Thickening of the pleura but whether or not it is mesothelioma she can’t say for sure. So, more tests, she meets with the radilogists next Monday and they will decide whether he has a biopsy using a CT scan which would be done within a couple of weeks in Tauranga or whether he goes to Hamilton and has a Medical Thoroscoscopy- a dig around under anaesthetic, that would be 6 weeks away.
We are actually hughly relieved that there has been no change as this particular disease moves very fast. What concerned her was T has pain in his right side’like somebody has kicked him in the ribs and is still quite breathless at times. Mind you so am I and we both had the same virus so that may get better- I hope so I am sick of panting up the bank.
So a long anxious day, we went to the movies to fill in time.
