    It’s been 308 days since I had an upper right lobe lobectomy.   I’m spending this New Years Eve with my wife and three sons (7, 9 and 11) at an indoor water park.  Walking the stairs probably isn’t like it would have been last year but I’m able to do it and here to enjoy it.   I’ll add making it easier to climb stairs to the list of resolutions (I’ve got a few).   Another year in the books.  I hope 2020 is a little healthier, a littler easier and a lot happier for everyone here.  ❤️🌟💫💪🏼🥊💥🥂

    Curt got a reaction from TJM in Am I doing a right thing? I am new this forum   
    @Ted I was in the exact situation last year.  I went into surgery not knowing and came out with Stage 1 Lung cancer.  If it wasn’t cancer they would only have taken a wedge with no change in lung capacity.  Since it was cancer they removed the entire lobe.  I have not required any follow up treatment.  My lung capacity is back to normal.  I have a little bit of numbness.  Surgery is the gold standard for treatment.  It does feel barbaric to do it without knowing for sure but I did and I’m glad I did.

    Welcome @G.A.M.   I’m sorry to hear about your diagnosis and your other difficulties.  You’ve come to the right place for support.  AlL of us are here for the same reason, to give and to get.
    Surgery is an affective treatment but it comes with its risks and recovery challenges.  That is why they are focused on the lung function tests.   The uncertainty during the diagnosis phase and treatment planning is stressful.  We are here to listen.  
     
    Hang in there.

    Waiting for results is awful.  4mm is REALLY small though.  Is this the first nodule or have you had LC before?

    Curt reacted to Lisa L in New and concerned about PET suv   
    Hi Willa, I have a 9mm slightly spiculated nodule in left lung, caught by chance on ct last December.   I had a pet 3 weeks later with no Uptake.  I got a pulmonologist and did another ct in April and Aug. with no growth, so considered stable and next scan is end of feb.  now with that said how does this affect my mental state, at first I freaked out ever day and was a complete mess but after talking to my pulmonologist and the nodule staying stable I started just forgetting about it.  Fast forward today and last two weeks I have had pain in left chest like it’s sore so once again I’m completely freaked out yet I go back to what my pulmonologist said that I would never feel anything from a small nodule and I tried to calm down and think about what I’ve been doing differently and I realised I’ve increased my upper body workout and I’m just sore from that.  Our minds can play funny tricks on us.  I would see what next ct scan shows and if it has grown and since it did light up on the pet I would choose to have it removed, keep us updated and stay strong, the people on this forum are amazing.  Love and light ❤️

    I am now in my seventh month of treatments after diagnosis...just had my second CT Scan earlier this week.  Good news...no new growth or spreading and my tumor continues to shrink.  Sometimes I hope to hear the tumor is gone, but, for now, I remain optimistic and hopeful, realizing God is good, and prayers are powerful.

    Hello @Willa   I’m sorry to hear about the nodule.  What you’ve mentioned is suspicious.  I watched one for a year with no growth and very low SUV.  It was too small for a biopsy.  In the end my doctor recommending a wedge resection to remove it.  It turned out to be cancer and they proceeded with a lobectomy.  I’ve made a full recovery and haven’t needed any follow up treatment.  Watching your nodule is a reasonable approach.
