SamGirl50 Posted October 21, 2020 Share Posted October 21, 2020 Hello all! Good morning and blessings to everyone. I met with the surgeon yesterday and he said that he classifies me as stage 1b and has scheduled me for VATs surgery to remove the URL on November 30th. I'm also scheduled for a bronchoscopy this Monday, he said they are going to check the lymph nodes. I do have to have another biopsy done (they'll call me to schedule) before surgery on the second nodule in the RML because he said if it is cancer, he would like to remove it, via wedge resection, during the same surgery. If it is not cancerous, he would not remove it. He stated that he is going for a cure. He told me that he wants me to start walking, vigorously, everyday for about 50 mins to build up my lungs before surgery. I'm glad that it feels like things are getting into position but unfortunately it doesn't take away that fear. Everyone have a wonderful day! Sam I'm a Girl and I'm 50...
