I previously posted a thread on here about my lung situation and diesel exhaust fumes. A couple people did respond and actually helped me by motivating me to see a doctor, I did just that.

The doctor perscribed me Biaxin and above the normal dosage. He also gave me an inhaler and told me to use it three times a day. He then sent me to a radiology office for chest X-Rays. I must admit I'm a little worried, doctors don't just send people for costly X-Rays without due cause. My question to you enlightened few is....

Is this X-Ray percautionary ? or would he actually have to suspect something is wrong ?

Thanks for those of you who respond.

  • The doctor ordering xrays could vrey well only be a precausion, but also very helpful to him in properly diagnosing the true cause and/or extent of damage to your lungs, which will in turn help him more effectively treat your condition. I stongly urge you to have the xrays taken.
