Had NHL, defused large b-cell stage 3B 5 years ago. Total remish Feb 06.

Cough, shortness of breath,
pain lower abs left & right side not at the saame time, pain killers do not help at all, even tried vicodin. Pain upper right chest swings around under arn to shoulder blade. Hot pad helps that everytime. When I lay down feels like something in ab is pressing or moving in direction I lay. Causes ab and lower back pain to start.

CT scan chest, ab and pelvic - found hiller mass in right lung upper and lower, and nodal mass. 2 nodes enlarged in abs, not big enough to worry about.

Did lung biopsy (Bronchoscopy) In conclusive for cancer, everything else neg.

Petscan 2 days ago, no results yet. During scan extreme pain in left chest - to shoulder blade.

Scheduled for an other lung biopsy Monday.

This combined with a doc that dropped the ball big time has me very frustrated and worried.

Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
