jim_wny Posted December 10, 2007 Share Posted December 10, 2007 Hi everyone just found this site. My name is Jim and I'm 53 married with 1 son ( 26 ) Had a bad case of flu at the end of October and went too see my doctor who sent me for a chest X ray Noted a small spot on upper left lobe and then went for ct scan which revealed a small 1.9 cm nodule Pet scan showed that spot ( thankfully no others ) as hot. Went for a Bronchoscopy/ biopsy 12/10 but unfortunately could not get to the tumor and lung collapsed ( got to spend an unexpected night at hospital ) Now will be going in for Surgery tomorow ( 12/11 ) for VAS at which point they'll do biopsy and if cancerous proceed to remove upper left node. At this point Drs' are saying stage 1 if it turns out cancerous Well thats it for now will let you know how things are when I get back home from surgery Thanks for taking the time to read Jim Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
