I Am 33 Years Old And Was Diagnosed Two Years Ago With Pulmonary Sarcoidosis. I Have A H/o Diabetes, Asthma, And High Cholesterol. I Was Admitted To The Hospital 4 Days Ago For Chest Pain And Was Discharged W/masses On My Liver, Right Kidney, And Tail Of My Pancreas. I Am So Frustrated!! The Doctors Don't Seem To Think That The Masses Are From My Sarcoid But Aren't Overly Concerned W/these Masses. I Am A Registered Nurse And Work In A Hospital. This Is Not Something That Should Be Overlooked. They Scheduled Ultrasounds Of These Areas To Be Followed Up On An Outpatient Basis. I Just Cant Take Sitting Here Not Knowing What These Are From. Help!!

  • Did you get anywhere? Sorry to see what you are going through. That is nuts that they discharged you like that. What about following up with a doctor that knows sarcoid well to see if they can be related? Or just try another internist? Hope you are doing better.
