Nancy B Posted July 1, 2006 Share Posted July 1, 2006 All tests came out good, so surgery will be Monday, July 10, 10:00 am. He will do a bronchoscopy first and if he can find anything to biopsy, he will. If he does and they find small cell, they will stop surgery and I guess then proceed to chemo and radiation. If he can't find anything to biopsy (he doubts he will), then he will go ahead and do a completion phenmonectomy, take out the rest of my left lung so he can get to the tumor so they can biopsy it. Since I have had both SCLC and NSCLC (leave it to me to be odd) they have to know what it is to properly treat it. I am alittle nervous as he says that this surgery is riskier than the first two but he is an accomplished surgeon and does lung transplant surgeries. 3rd time's a charm, maybe I will get it right this time and not have to do this again. We have a race in Sonoma, CA the first weekend in August and my goal is to be there. I sure would appreciate your thoughts and prayers. Love and hugs to you all, Nancy B Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
