My wife was treated for small cell lung cancer for six months beginning in January, 2008.
She had a combination of chemo and radiation therapy that finished off with brain radiation.
Last week, a brain MRI revealed a 1.5 cm tumor. The neurosurgeon says it is operable, easily accessible, and can be fully removed. Operation scheduled in Pensaclola Sacred Heart Hospital for May 11
The doc has made it sound like a walk in the park. Four days post op in hospital, some unspecified recovery time, and then back to the new normal.
I would appreciate more specific information on what to expect the impact of the operation will be on her ability to function as she does now, before the operation.
