Guest Posted June 15, 2004 Share Posted June 15, 2004 Our family dr. called yesterday with the results of my husband's pulmonary function test--he told us his lungs are not good enough for surgery--I lost it and started crying uncontrollably--what does this mean? My husband doesn't even use oxygen only 2 inhalers, he has been complaining of more difficulty breathing--but nothing drastic. He is being sent to a pulmonary specialist asap hopefully today or tomorrow and he will make the final decision. I am so confused at this point, I am hoping the dr. meant his lungs were not good enough to remove 1/2 his lung and will be able to proceed with removing just the nodule. Maybe I"m mistaken but I thought people with copd or emphysema were still able to have the VATS surgery. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
