Sorry you are having problems.
Can't help you much with the enlarged lymph nodes in your chest and am sorry you have them. I have nodules in my lungs which are thought to be of an inflamatory process. My lymph nodes in the lungs are seen but not enlarged. They can become enlarged with certain infections too, like TB so scleroderma is not always related to everything. I am not saying you have an infection or TB but those are some things they look at with I'm sure many other things.
When is your biopsy surgery? Will keep you in my thoughts and wish you speedy results and recovery.

I have not had nor heard of enlarged lymph nodes in the chest relating to scleroderma but I am not an expert or a doctor either. I am glad you are having it looked into. Keep us posted as to how things turn out with your biopsy.
Do you have a scleroderma diagnosis? Looking forward to hearing more from you!

It makes me feel bad that you are going through this and am terribly sorry. I'm glad you dumped the other doctor and am horrified he has postponed your treatment for sclero by being inadequate. Keep posting and jump in with us and stay connected with this group of wonderful people. These situations can cause other problems but it sounds like the new doctor is taking right over and making up for some lost time. Hang in.
As always keeping you in my thoughts.

I do not have any experience with the nodes you are describing. I will be very interested to hear what you find out from your doctors, so do please keep us posted.
Again, welcome to our family!

The reason they were found was I was coughing to the point of loosing my breath. Years ago I was exposed to asbestos and 3 of my siblings died because of it.
That was treated and after a few months it was just something to followup on. May yours go as well.
