Irka Posted June 3, 2019 Share Posted June 3, 2019 Dear Friends, My surgery is over! My right middle lobe was removed – the 1.1 x 1.0 x 0.8 cm nodule was adenocarcinoma according to the pathology report. The nodule in right upper lobe was removed -- pathology didn’t find any malignancy, referring to it as “scar tissue.” Surgeon was unable to reach a very small lesion also in right upper lung, and we will keep an eye on it. He said my cancer is Stage 1 & I don’t need chemo, which was very good news indeed. The surgery was May 22, I came home May 27, and am creeping along. My biggest challenge is dealing with the pain (not sleeping well even with wedge pillow). At this point I am taking Tylenol, Gabapentin (nerve pain), Cyclobenzaprine HL. I see my surgeon tomorrow for post-op & will bring up pain issue. My heartfelt thanks to all of you for your thoughts, encouragement & prayers!
