wpoohn Posted January 31, 2009 Share Posted January 31, 2009 I just got the definate diagnosis of nsclc today after three months of tests and being on a roller coaster of emotions. The oncologist is calling it stage 1 and says we caught it early--but-- my mass is pretty big--3.8x5cm, in the lower right lobe. I am scheduled to go to the Cleveland Clinic to talk to a surgeon on Tuesday---and to have ressection done asap. I've already had my pft and am operable, and have had a ct/pet done with no sign of any lymph node involvement so far. They have found that I also have papillary thyroid cancer---but that is supposed to be more treatable and is to be tackled later. Needless to say---I am a mess---trying to be positive---but still dealing with a partially collapsed lung from my ct biopsy Tuesday---and also impatient to fight this before I get sick or start to weaken. I don't know anyone who has a clue about what this is like. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
