Pat&Bert Posted July 18, 2006 Share Posted July 18, 2006 Hi, My husband has just been diganosed with lung cancer. The thoracic surgeon recommended by the hospital has a disaplinary action against him by the state for cocaine use. Great huh? We are pretty sure we will go to either Dana Farber in Boston, MA or Sloan-Kettering in NYC. We live about 1/2 way between each. I cannot seem to find out if either specializes in lung cancer. I have researched all the sites, but they are all cancer related not specifically lung cancer. We are more antsy than usual because his brother died 2 years ago after an operation for lung cancer. It seems his doctor did not stitch up an artery correctly. It blew in recovery room. By the time he got back in the operating room, he lost so much blood he went into a coma. Was taken off life support 5 days later. It seems like the same thing is happening to us. We will go anywhere he can get the best care. Please make any suggestions. My head is spinning. I just do not know where to turn. Thanks in advance. Pat Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
