LouT Posted May 2, 2019 Share Posted May 2, 2019 Hi folks. Well, I spent half a day yesterday getting all my pre-op testing and exams in preparation for my surgery this Thursday. I have to assume that this hospital is really quite good at what they do as I don't ever recall having such a thorough exam done as well as meetings with Anesthesiology and Surgical Team. I did get a gift from them...a red bracelet I have to wear from now through the surgery with all my blood typing data on it. Today I spent my day taking care of some outstanding things that could probably wait, but will keep me from dwelling on the surgery. Since they want me at the hospital at 5am tomorrow (surgery at 8am) I won't have a lot of time to dwell on anything. I took Curt's advice and asked for a Germ DNA test, but they said they don't do that at this point, but an oncologist may order one later on the sample taken. Again, this is listed as a wedge biopsy, but I've already been told that since my nodule has grown from Jan. to Mar. that there is only a 10% chance of it being benign. So, it sounds like a lower-right lobectomy. I've been reading so many of your messages and I cannot tell you how they've helped to keep me from going over the edge during the past few weeks. I'll get an update out once I'm able. Funny, my anxiety was so high yesterday and as I'm getting ready to sleep before surgery it's all gone. Not sure why, maybe I'm just glad to get this over with. Thanks again to all for the great support and I'll keep you in my prayers and send out good thoughts. Lou Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
