    Hi guys... Had an x-ray a few weeks back and something was found on a lymph node in my lung due to have a CAT scan today for further clarification and GP has advised that it may be some sort of Calcification around some scarring in my lung. Only thing I can think of is when I was diagnosed 2 years ago I spent 2 days in intensive care as a result of severe respiratory failure due to DKA. Has anyone had any similar issues? And should I be worried?? I'll need to see GP in a few weeks to discuss the results but after a few miss diagnosis with family members in the past I don't really have much faith in the GP's
