Well, I'm finally coming up on surgery (diagnosed Feb 9). It's scheduled for this coming Friday. Although the anxiety levels are starting (continuing) to increase, I'm ready to get that sucker out of me. It's about 7cm and located in the upper lobe, so it will be a laparoscopic radical procedure.
I've had simultaneous bi-lateral knee replacement, so I'm used to some types of surgery pain, but I suspect this could be quite different.
I've been able to keep busy at work, so at least during the day I don't think about it every minute. Hopefully at the end of this coming week, I'll be on the recovery side of this trip and looking forward to a few motorcycle trips later this summer as well as important stuff like spending time with my family and friends.
I'll be back in a week or so and let you know how I'm doing.
