Danhole Posted April 3, 2012 Share Posted April 3, 2012 Due to a pre-op screening for sinus surgery, a "mass" was found in my left lung. Went through a CT chest scan, PET scan, and a biopsy. My lung collapsed after the biopsy on the 23rd, so I was in the hospital until last Sat. (3/31). While I was in there I got the DX OF NSCLC (hope I'm using right shortcuts), said it is adenocarcinoma, and I will have to have that part of my lung removed. I am going today for a second opinion about the surgery because the surgeon I met in hosp wants to wait and my dr. thinks the surgery needs to be done quickly. I don't know what to think, or say, or even to ask. This has happened very quickly. I am a 54 yr old woman who has felt really bad for the past year or two, but had some fairly clueless doctors that ignored my complaints. Now there are some answers but even more questions.
