Did you have a biopsy and do know the type of lung cancer? How big are those nodules now? Sorry - we get pretty close quickly around here.:)

It sounds like you have been waiting and watching for a long time. That means whatever you've got there is especially slow growing. I think that is a good thing.:) Also, great that they can remove them surgically. I hope that you are successful in curing this with surgery only. If you end up requiring follow up treatment, we've got someone here who has been on just about anything you might be prescribed and can hopefully answer your questions or quiet your concerns.:)

Surgery - well, what we tend to tell everyone is to prep your home (including someone to do your bidding for at least a few days after you return!) This is a good time to accept help. The second thing - and perhaps the most important? Stay ahead of the post-surgery constipation! Between hospital time, inactivity, and pain meds, constipation can be torture.:)

Other than that - with a dx only 3 days old - well, it's remarkable you have found this place of support and understanding.:) Please let us know the plan and what we can do for you.:)

Best.
