Guest Posted May 25, 2004 Share Posted May 25, 2004 After a very stressfull week my H had his first dr. appointment today. The ct results showed a spot that the dr said was about the size of your small fingernail; My H is being scheduled for a pft test next week and a heart stress test if needed. Surgery to remove the area is being scheduled in about 3 weeks. The dr is talking about removing 1/2 his lung--of which I was very upset as he has copd and difficulty breathing and if he doesn't do well on his pft test then he will do vats. I am not familiar with any of these and it seems very scary to the both of us. I ask the dr what would be done when the area was removed and he said that was it no chemo or anything they will just watch him periodically to make sure nothing else shows up. I am so glad my H was enrolled in the elcap program or this might have had a different outcome. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
