Hola a todos
I have been diagnosed with 2 lung nodules on both lungs.. Great!! The one that is suspecious is the left one which measures 1.8. I'm having surgery this friday which my surgeon says he will start the surgery, remove the nodule n biopsy it right there. If it's cancerous, he will remove the lower lobe, if it's not (God willing) he will just remove the nodule. I would like to know if anyone has had this procudure done and how did it go? My doc says that I will be in the hospital for 2-3 days n discharged right after the chest tube is removed. I have a very small pain tolerance so I'm going to have an epidural, as recommended by the docs due to low bp. I'm scared, very scared but I know God is with me... Oh, I must say, I don't smoke n have never been exposed to 2nd hand smoke, so where did this come from? Un-known to me. I'm 45 yrs old n have 2 girls age 22 n 19. Seeking info n advice...
