Lbelle78 Posted March 23, 2017 Share Posted March 23, 2017 Thanks to all of you who have given me advice on this terrible journey. Despite my pulmonologist's optimistic outlook on how " lung cancer in someone your age is as rare as hen's teeth," I was diagnosed yesterday following my bronchoscopy with what looks to be adenocarcinoma, hopefully stage 1, upper right lobe, no lymph nodes lit up on PET or appear to be involved at this point, but surgery will tell. My uterus lit up also, but they think this was due to doing the scan during menses, and CT with contrast showed no indications of tumors. I will have to follow up with my obgyn. I have an appt. tomorrow with the surgeon and they stated that turnaround for the surgery would be very quick, within the week. I am hoping that I am a candidate for VATS and/or robotic surgery. This is terrifying for me, as I have never had any type of surgery before. I've looked at some of your experiences since yesterday. Waking up after surgery would be fabulous! Waking up on a vent scares me to pieces. Good experiences you can share?? Mally 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
