  1. Hello, I am facing lung surgery. Had a biopsy on upper right lobe--inconclusive, but mentions Atypical Adenomatous Hyperplasia: AAH and a well-differentiated lepidic-type adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS). I also have an area in lower right lobe that has been stable for 16 years but is now showing more "activity" on PET scan. It has not been biopsied Have met with 1 surgeon who says he would take out both areas at same time--fine by me--get them out! He would do wedge resections, probably removing about 1/5 of each lobe. He says, and I agree, it will be 1 procedure to accomplish both removal and biopsy, instead of another biopsy then follow with surgery. NOW, the news I didn't want--he says he'd do a Thoracotomy, which I don't want. I expected he'd do VATS so was surprised. I have appointment with another doc next week and am hoping he will offer VATS. IF both docs say it HAS to be Thoracotomy, I have no choice. From everything I read and hear and see here, VATS is the way to go if you can. I am trying to find out if VATS can be done on both lobes at same time? seems it should be able to, but I can't find anything online. Has ANYONE had VATS on 2 lobes? ALSO, have those of you with wedge resection and VATs been able to fly on planes OK? That is a concern also. REALLY would appreciate any info. you might provide---personal experience is always better to learn from than what you read or even what the docs gloss over...THANK YOU!!
