This afternoon was scary enough being Friday the 13th and going to my onc to talk about my treatment since all surgeries have been done and all path reports were in. At first I was told T3 and they were waiting on the biopsy from the lymphnodes. They all cme back neg with one inconclusive. After seeing that the "Inconclusive" showed it was not cancer nor infection, my Onc said since I had Mono the first of November and a severe outbreak of shingles, it show inflammed slightly. He was not concerned about it....that was good, right? Well, I was told by the surgeon that did my surgery that he took out 2 tumors not one. Path report now shows thee larger tumor was cancer but the smaller second one was not. So, after having a long visit with my onc, and another onc in the room and talking to the lung doctor on intercom along with the surgeon, they have decided to get me built back up, get this cough I have to stop and take me back into surgery to remove the upper left lobe and remove my port. They all feel that this is indeed the best treatment for me and will keep me from having to under go chemo. I should feel pretty good about this, but removing the upper left lobe after only have a wedge done on the left lung 4 weeks ago is really scary to me! They are looking at doing this the first of Feb. Out of 4 doctors they all can't be wrong can they? I trust my Onc. He is a great and compassionate doctor. He feels doing this ups my 5 year survival rate a great deal. Please let me know your thoughts on this.
In Peace you will find Love, with both you will find Eternity!
