My husband is having his LLL removed on Friday. He had the RUL removed on Jan. 24th. We are ready, well, as ready as you can be when you know what's coming:-), thanks to all of the great advice and support we got from everybody on this board last time. The tumor is touching the aorta so this surgery is a little more dicey, no VATS for this, but we are hoping the surgeon will be able to peel that bad boy right off of there and take out the lower lobe and we can go for the cure! As they say Go big or go home! and we hope to go home cancer free- of course after a 5-6 day stay at the hospital. thanks for the all of your postings. I gather so much encouragement and hope in our battle against this pain in the a**.
