I just joined this site because I am very confused and frightened and so in the dark right now. My mother ended up in the ER last week with a collapsed lung. She had emergency surgery and a cat scan which showed a mass on her right lung. The doctor also mentioned that her lymph nodes were swollen. They immediately put her under to biopsy her lung and some lymph nodes in her chest. She doesn't have a follow up appointment for the results until the 24th of this month and of course all of us are scared to death in the interim. Is it normal to wait so long to get biopsy results?? None of this makes any sense. She has always been so active and vivacious. Could this all just be nothing but a false alarm?? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated...This has just all come as such a shock wihout any warning whatsoever...
