HI NANUK YES I HAV HAD THORACOSCOPY AND HAD A SUCESSFUL BIOSPY. I WAS REAL SCARED BUT IT WAS FINE AND THE ONLY WAY TO GET A BIOSPY FOR ME. THE CANCER WAS IN MY LUNG AND LYMPH NODES THEY COULDNT GET TO THE SPOT IN MY LUNG TO BIOSPY SO THEY HAD TO DO THIS. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE WRITE ME OR TELL ME HOW WE CAN CHAT YOURS TRULY HOPE4ME.

I am a 47 woman lung cancer survior of 3 years. I had this done, They cut me at the base of my neck and scoped the Lymph nodes of my chest walls. I went home the same day. Very little discomfort. Fortunely only my right lymph nodes were affected. When the removed the bottom 3rd of my right lung they removed several of the nodes. If it is the same it really sounds scarrier than it was.
