ColleenRae Posted September 28, 2018 Share Posted September 28, 2018 I doubt I will be like some other remarkable people here - posting right after surgery! I probably won't even have my laptop with me and my phone will stay with my son (I recall reading Lexie saying something about her phone being stolen at the hospital!) Really scared, I have to admit. I am terrified of the procedure. I am terrified of what I'm about to find out. I finally got access this a.m. to the surgeon's notes from our consult. I did not even know there is another GGO on my right upper lung, in addition to the one they are concerned about (also RUL), so they will be getting 2 tumors at once. Guess that's the good news! I also read the surgeon said something about "parenchyma" - getting info on that would be possibly "useful down the road"... I'm not sure what this means, do not recall discussing this term. I don't know why I am so scared. Just really worn out in trying to make this all work for me, my son, living in a fairly new city, new home, no friends or family. This morning I wanted to just call off the whole thing. I sure don't feel as strong as the rest of you on this site! I can't seem to shake my fear and just go with this. I feel like I'm in a really bad dream. In any case, I will try to update shortly after surgery, if possible. In the meantime, please send good wishes... they do help... for both my son and me! Thank you! He's holding up much better than me. I can hardly think. I am really upset... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
