Hi I am Jennifer and live near Seattle, WA USA. Weather here is much like South of England where I lived for many years when I was young.
I had my second CT of chest since DX of Bronchiectasis in January when I was very sick. Dr. now wants me to have a lung biopsy to see what we are dealing with. It is not cancer but she wants to find out which type I have. My sputum test came back negative for bacteria.
Rather than make an appointment with the surgeon now, I want to talk to her first. I am 67 and won't live forever! Does it really matter to know which type I have? Should I have just gone ahead and got the biopsy? Does it hurt? I don't know which type, probably the probe first. I hope anyway.
Thank you for any input you might have. Feeling a bit overwhelmed.
