Today my boyfriend checked in for surgery of his lung mets tomorro (it's 1am now). . Different to what the oncologist told my boyfriend last week, they are suspecting 4 mets on the left and 2 to 3 on the right lung (originally 4-5 total). they will do open surgery tomorrow only on the left side which they prefer doing laparoscopically (In order to be able to feel any additional mets the scan didn't show) and ablation of one spot on the liver. Once he recuperated - they think 2 to 4 weeks later - they want to do another open surgery on the right side of the Lung. Can anybody give me an indication on how bad these surgeries will be for him? Do they involve lots of pain? He has so far "only" been through colon and various liver surgeries (including about any complication one could think of).
In addition, I haven't been in this forum for a long time but it would be wonderful if you could keep your fingers crossed / keep him in your prayers.
