Hi, so here is my question. Should I just relax about this or should I make a bigger deal out of it and call the doc and really get in ASAP? You know how these things can sound all medically bad but be practically meaningless, like A.K.A "gas".
Anyhow, so I have some under the rib right sided pain, lightheadiness and possibly shortness of breath. Had a xray and the DOC posted the report for me online today and stated the following and will schedule a f/u visit:
"there was volume loss of the right hemithorax but it might be as a function of splinting".
What does that mean, why would I have a volume loss and is it bad? Soujnds better to have a loss then a gain (tumor) and what is splinting and how would that play into this? Should I be concerned and push for more immediate answers or should I relax and chill until the follow-up, is this a benign report?
Really apprecaite your professional feedback and thank you!
