mama4zach Posted January 28, 2005 Share Posted January 28, 2005 What I was trying to say is i am confused. I went to Johns Hopkins for my appt with the Dr. and to get all my pre-op done for the mediastinoscopy. When we got into disscussion, he said he was going to do the pulmonary resection and I said no, you told me mediastinoscopy. He said well I thought about it and if I find cancer then you will go for treatment with chemo, if I don't find cancer, I will go ahead with the resection. But i didn't know there would be a back up. I could not understand why the lung surgery if there is no cancer. Does anyone understand what I mean. I am just so scared. I have to be here for baby zach. His life without me really bothers me. If any of you have been to johns hopkins or any other hospital that does it this way, please let me know. Also. how bad is the actualy resection i know they cut under arm and around the back and go thru ribs but how is the pain, and every thing else that goes with it. I am sorry for being such a baby but I can not stand to be sick like this. Again, Thank you and God Bless you Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
