Hi, I am Back with Continuing Info and An Update on Tests

Last updated: November 2022

It has been quite a while since I posted anything.

Looking for lymphoma

I was going through CT scans chest, abdomen, and an ultrasound on my back and thyroid. All the rheumatologists were looking for lymphoma.

Well, the findings are NO lymphoma, yea, yea.

What they found was a hypoattenuating lesion on the back of my liver, which is larger than the scan from December 2021. I didn't know anything about this before.

Mild calcification in my aorta, and diverticulosis which I knew about. The ultrasound showed nodules on both sides of my liver and stated a CT scan should be done.

So, for the Ĺiver lesion, I have to have ultrasound every 3 months, so Nov 16th is the date.

The CT scan of the neck re thyroid - there is no thyroid there, it is all fatty tissue. What the...

So, that is it. The idea of lymphoma was to no avail, which is great.

Weight loss

And as of September, after being on antibiotics for diverticulitis and a liquid diet for 7 days.

I am losing weight. I had lost about 10 lbs more than a year ago, but know I had put a bit of that back on.

Right now I have lost a total of 30 lbs. My surgeon is going to be very pleased for when I have my hip replacement next year. I am feeling great and hoping for another 30 lbs more to get rid of.

Thank you
Blessings and Prayers to all
