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.
I already had 1st round chemo and radiation this June through Nov., 2010.

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 !!!!!!!!!

Thanx

Dave

Wow, you have been through a rough time. I am glad you are home. This sounds like the tx did its job and now you may have it surically removed, which is great. I hope you feel better and better everyday. Lori
