Hello,
Thanks for your query at DoctorSpring.com
I understand your concern. I feel very very sorry for the way the doctor is treating you. It is your personal choice to report about him. Or you can just switch to another doctor directly without referral. Perihilar bronchial thickening is a radiological sign on chest X-ray film due to involvement of the lungs. I am giving you two links for your reference.

I hope that was helpful
Regards

dear dr many thanks for nice letter. i am sorry i havent written i dont understand what you mean send my xray to the adress you gave me? i cant put the xray into the computer? i do not have a scanner or copier and i dont know how to do? sorry. i have tried to get the dr to help me again and my sister went and told him and all he says is that i have asthma . and the xray dinet say i had astma and he told her it did and it didnet. and she beleived him and yelled at me and told me of and upset me. i am telling the truth. he even said i had been tested for asthma and i havent . why is he telling her lies? i never went to hospital or saw any specialist or nothing. it is him who is saying this and he is only a gp. he just said i have the puffers and they do not work and i even have tried many herbal products for bronchitis and asthma i saw on the computer and i still remain the same nothing has changed. i still am sweating with cold watery feelings inside the chest. i have not seen my siter for 8 months now even when she told him we are missing each other very much he still wont help or send me somewhere. i think i need a scan as it said plain xray only suggests bronchitis and i heard plain xrays dont show everythink up or clear as a scan does and he wont help me with that either. they all shake thier heads at me and my twin sister asthough we are crazy. and we think its them who are crazy. please tell me what to do as i have reached the end of my tether. thanking you yours sincerely polly :(


Hello,
You can take a picture or get the x-ray scanned from any of the internet shops and send me a copy.
I need to review the x ray and if possible a CT SCAN of the thorax to see what exactly is wrong.
It is very difficult as you have already tried a lot of medicines and it hasn't worked.
Please get the reports scanned and email it to me.
Regards.
