Hi Mark, I thought it might be something like that. On this forum you'll find folks,includinng Tom G.who live well with one lung. Have they explored the possibilty of SBRT (precision radiaion) instead of surgery, or does the location rule that out? Keep us up to date and let us know how we can support you.
You're in a difficult spot, Linda. I don't have any great advice or much advice at all, actually. But I wante you to know I feel for you. I went through a lot with my mom, who lived at a distance (I had to fly there). She had metastatic breast cancer with ongoing chemo and also she broke her hip. She had some cognitive impariment, due, I think, from her chemo. She lived alone. She was not in agreement with what I thought was in her best interests. It was a difficult time for both of us. So I have some idea what you're going through.
My only thought is that it's a good thing to maintain family relationships if you can, even when things are difficult and not going as you think they should. I wish peace for you and your family.
