Well Family----just got out of Hospital after 3 weeks due to strep-pneumonia infection in the plueral, right side. Very rough--collapsed in ER with severe pain and could not breathe, was on supplement oxygen for a week.
I am now home on IV antibiotics for a month, then I will have a CT Scan, then my new doc's think they can remove my upper right lobe and I will be NED.
The lymphnodes showed no cancer remaining, right upper and maybe middle lobe with tumor can now come out according to my thorassic surgeon.
The new Docs think I was classified incorrectly as a IIIB, not operable, they wish to change it to IIIA and then there will be no reason not to do Vats on right lung in say March.
We will see !!!!!!!!!
