Scruboak Posted December 5, 2021 Share Posted December 5, 2021 I’m posting this to hopefully shift my anxiety today. Stage 1A2 invasive mucinous adenocarcinoma. Completely resected 18 months ago. I had a second VATs 2 weeks later to remove 1.8 liters of blood from my chest with the result that the surgeon had to remove part of the upper lung, too. IMA of the lung has had little research because it is less common than non mucinous adenocarcinoma. I’ve been told that IMA has a relatively poor prognosis in terms of intrapulmonary recurrence no matter what the stage and I’ve been told also just the opposite.😩 I think I have PTSD of sorts. That two week period of trying to walk with all that blood in my lung was excruciating and depressing. At any rate, it helps to get this out with folks that understand. I took a long walk on the Rainbow trail this morning which was glorious. I try to keep some rational thoughts in mind. I’ve had a couple of scans before that have been fine but I’ve had it in my head that the closer I get to a certain timeframe post surgery, the more chance things have time to grow. That’s irrational and crazy making. I’ll let you all know as soon as results come back p. In the meantime I’m going to make some soup and thread my loom. Ah, resolve!
