3boys4amy Posted September 24, 2004 Share Posted September 24, 2004 The doctor said that there was a spot on one of his lymph nodes that shouldn't be there. They think it might have spread. He goes in next Thursday for a biopsy to be sure. The surgeon said that if it hasn't spread that they will attempt to take his right lung completely, as the tumor is large and centrally located. I am so disouraged and scared. I don't think the reality of it all hit me until dad's girlfriend told me that they were going to do a biopsy of the lymph nodes. I had no idea that he even had a spot on them.... he just found out today. How likely is it to be something else? While I was visiting him in July, I went to a doctor visit with him and the pulmo thought she felt an inflamed lymph node then.... I wonder if it is the same one. What next? I am just so scared now and I feel so alone. My husband's grandfather died of LC many years ago, so I know he has somewhat been through this. But I almost feel I can't go to him with this. Almost like I would be showing some sort of weakness. I need to be strong for everyone. Do you know of any supprt groups that are face to face? Maybe a national group that has branches?
