Goodafternoon Mini George,

Hopefully the chemo they give you will shrink the tumor, clear the lymph nodes and then the dr can go in and take out that horrible tumor...

i am a caregiver for my husband, the operation he had was the easy part. he could have come home the next day but thank goodness the dr was out of town and he had to stay 5 days. he had the whole left lung removed and 7 lymph nodes...

I pray that you go through this, come out clean and get on with your life. If not, be a great fighter for that is what it takes.... God Bless

Hello Mini George;

My very best to you. I was staged IIB, T2 N1, that was over 2 years ago. :) I'll be praying the chemo shrinks the tumor and they can remove it.

God bless abd be well

Hi M.G.-

I am right there ahead of you and Bobmc: T1N1M0 Stage IIa. I had my surgery 2/02, so am now a 1 1/2 year survivor. Praying for the tumor to shrink quickly so you can get on with the surgery. Ask us any questions, share concerns and fears, and fight like crazy!! Best of luck.
