Surgery scheduled

Recommended Posts

Ok, loved this new surgeon, scheduled for robotic lobectomy April 12. Still can't believe I am doing this. Scared to do EBUS for mediastinum biopsy and MRI, more the anxiety of waiting to hear results than anything.

OK! Glad to hear your persistence paid off and that you're able to have robotic.  Best of luck!

Lbelle,

Well it is somewhat settled and that is a good thing. I never had an EBUS procedure. Mine was an old fashioned incision at the base of my throat, but I quickly recovered. From what I've read, EBUS is a piece of cake. 

The special form of anxiety you are feeling anticipating test results is a common lung cancer survivor lament. I was so affected, I even wrote a book about it. 

Keep us in the loop and...

Stay the course.

Tom

My prayers are with you today. I hope your surgery was a complete success and your recovery is relatively painless. May G-D look after you and your family.

I goofed on the surgery date, it is April 21st. It would be glad to have that done, lol. I'm going for an EBUS to biopsy the lymph nodes in the Mediastinum tomorrow morning. The surgeon would not proceed without it, and it would delay surgery if node involvement found during the EBUS is an issue. We are praying for a clear report.
