lilyjohn Posted September 9, 2003 Share Posted September 9, 2003 Has anyone heard of having a diagnosis from a biopsy of just one lymph node from the neck? I have read so many things and they all say that to get a diagnosis from a lymph node takes from one to three days. Yet we were given a diagnosis and stage after just one hour. Johnny was still in recovery from the surgery. He never had a lung biopsy. Is that unusual or not. I find that making that kind of diagnosis should have more to go on than a biopsy of just that one lymph node and a CAT scan that was inconclusive don't you? Also we were never told what kind of NSCLC he had. I read and all of you know the kind. We were never told any of that. I feel like his diagnosis was not really done properly and there could have been an error. I keep reading where even the PET scans make errors. He had been exposed to mold for over 7 years that brings up a lot of questions about fungus to the lung but no one ever did anything to find out if he had that. I am suspecious of everything they did with him after the way he died. Thanks for any information. Lillian Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
