creekgirlsc Posted November 4, 2007 Share Posted November 4, 2007 Hello All..... Tomorrow I head for the hospital to have an umbrella filter put in for the DVT...one of my onc. doctor's major concerns is blood clots. Will stay overnight & on Tuesday thorasic surgeon will do a lobectomy on upper right lobe and as she put it "scoop out" the lymph nodes near the center of my chest. All I could think of when she said that was a melon baller! The hospital has rollaway cots & recliners that almost become a bed so my husband & daughter will take turns holding my hand. I am so glad that they will be there as I am getting a wee bit anxious about this. From what I've read about the surgery (and heard from other posters) it wil not be the easiest in the world but not the hardest either. I have been listening to imaging tapes for the past couple of weeks & feel they are helping me. I will imagine having a circle of guardian angels (aka relatives & friends)around me to support me during this time. I know that I will probably have to do the rad./chemo thing again at some future time but feel that I am up to it & that it will be worth doing. Any prayers that you wish to say on Tuesday will be most welcome. Hint..Hint. I appreciate that there is a message board for lung cancer. I have learned much from all of you & so glad of your support & caring. Blessings.....Creekgirl Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
