Well I saw my VATS surgeon today, and it seems my med onc nurse didn't give me all the info last week on my PET scan. So I find out today that I have several noduels on both lungs not just two on the left. The biggest one is on the left lung, he said they all look the same, I asked what he meant and he said all the same cancer. I also have some "activity" in the hilar lymph nodes bilaterally, right more then left. And of course the SCC on my lip lite up due to not having clear margins after my surgery.
So he tells he wants to remove the biggest tumor however, my lungs are in such bad shape that I have to have a series of tests to see how strong they are and if I can tolerate the surgery. He flat out told me today that he will not operate unless he feels certian my lungs can handle it. So I have those tests next Thursday, then I will see him again and we will go over the results and see if the VATS will happen or not.
I just can't figure out how, this happened so quickly, my PET in Sept was clear. Thanks everyone for your support, hugs and prayer, thoughts, I SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO appreciate it!
