Hello Twirl, I am glad that he doesn't have cancer although emphysema can be quite nasty.  Does he smoke?  If so the please get him to stop straight away.   This link tells you all about it if you want to know more,  http://www.medicinenet.com/emphysema/article.htm  .
I hope things will go OK for him and that they can now stop it progressing, my friend's husband has it, he has an inhaler, he has had it for years and it seems stable.
Sending love to both of you and wishing for a good outcome  :grouphug;

Twirl, I am so glad the tests weren't showing what you most feared.   :cuddle;

So the doc is on vacation and you are sitting waiting to know if there is cancer?  Wow!   I am sorry for the extra days of worry you were put through.  But, I am thrilled there was no sign of cancer.  :thumbup;    Take a deep breath and enjoy the weekend together.   :cuddle;

Yay! No cancer. That is the best news possible.
Emphysema can be dealt with. I wish him the best in learning how to.

this morning at D I got a call from the doc's office who wanted my husband to have the cat scan
she had been on vacation so her doc on call called us
she is saying everything is normal and there is nothing wrong
and the other doc says he as emphysema
so I think he should go view the xray himself and let one or the other doc explain it to him ???

diagnosis is often nothing more than an "educated" (sheesh) game of russion roulette. by all means go have both doctors explain the x-ray. my prayers that you will find everything is alright.

Twirl, I think you should have them explain why one thinks there is nothing and one thinks there is emphysema.  I hope it really is nothing, but you deserve to know why there is such a difference of opinion between the two doctors.  :cuddle;

Although emphysema is no picnic it is better than the alternative. My well wishes for proper treatment and some relief.  :grouphug;

so Sluff you are a naked toll ( see three words at a time)
thought I should warn you
and PM me your address
and thanks
but then his doc called and said there was nothing wrong
apparently the doc taking her calls made a mistake
we insisted on looking at the Xray and having it explained to us
we are going next wed on my husband's conference period
and I get to leave dialysis 30 minutes early
