My Dad had this performed yesterday. It was suppossed to be an outpatient procedure. We were told by the surgeon he was stage IV - uncurable Lung Cancer. (Very hard to see the diagnosis on paper) He developed a blood clot in his lung and has to stay in the hospital for 3 more days. The doctor says he has to take coumidin for 6 months. Does anyone know if this will affect his chemo/radiation? The doctors cannot tell us anything and we don't see an oncologist until next week.
