Low Dose CT Scan

Blog Post created by meWisconsin on Apr 24, 2019

I listened to the advice of many EXers and had it done. Drove down to Milwaukee last Tuesday for the consultation with the Pulmonary doctor then had the scan done. It was a bit of an ordeal as Froedtert hospital complex in Milwaukee is a very large facility and finding your way around can be confusing. The hardest part was waiting for the results. Not knowing what they might find can be scary so when I saw the letter in the mail I was relieved because the Dr said if any was serious she would call me personally.

The results were: Lung RADS category 1 (there were no nodules or other important abnormalities)

Everyone please get this test done. Contact  your insurance company to see if they cover cancer screening but if you are on Medicare they will pay for it. 

I now live with the fact I am ok for awhile anyway. I will be sure to go back next year and have the scan done again.

Don't gamble like you are in Vegas, get it done.
