Scottk Posted October 13, 2021 Share Posted October 13, 2021 Hello, So I was in the emergency room back in February with chest pain. Diagnosed with pneumonia in left lung by ct scan, given antibiotics and sent home. Cleared up in a couple days but was told to follow up in a couple months with a pulmonologist which I did. New ct scan showed something still there and slightly larger. Next was pet scan which shows activity so needle biopsy. 2.8cm nodule of adenocarcinoma. Now scheduled for lobectomy of left lower lobe next week. Was supposed to be 2 weeks ago but got false positive on pre-op COVID test so had to wait 20 days. Got second opinion and everyone says this was caught very early so prognosis looks good. Got to the day before last time before the false positive so I know what the nerves will be like again next week. I normally handle things pretty calmly but this is difficult. It is good to be here with others in my situation. Scott Tom Galli and Lisa Haines 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
