My husband had pneumonia 2 times within 3 wks and hospitalized for them. He is now home and was on Levequen again for the past 7 days & still on predisone for another 2 weeks. Had extensive blood work, x-rays, scans and will have another scan in 2 wks and see his pulmonary dr. Other than this ha has been very healthy (71 yr old male)
This is the breakdown so far:
1 Concomitant bilateral upper lobe & right middle lobe pneumonia peripherally.
2 9.6 mm nodule at the periphery of the right upper lobe & 7mm nodule in the left upper lobe at the cardiopherenic angle
3 mildly prominent mediastinal lymp nodes possible reactive.
I think the dr wants to do a biopsy. I amd not sure what all of this means but I know from our talk with the doctor it does not sound good. Can anyone out there suggest anythin or what this all means? I want to learn as much as I can to deal and help him fight this desease.
Thank you all so much in advance!
