So tomorrow is the big appointment with the thoracic surgeon. I have a list of questions made up him.
I know this is last minute, but I was wondering if any of you that have gone thru a lung a biopsy had any suggestions for any questions?
I have the usual what type of surgery, how long is it, how long is the hospital stay, what is recovery like, side effects, bad things that could happen, how long for pathology results, someone suggested I make sure they get enough tissue for genetic testing (I have no idea why, but it can't hurt to make sure, just in case right?), where is the stuff on my lung located, where are the lymph nodes that are coming out, etc etc.
Can anyone think of anything I may be missing? I also have written down to discuss plans for the IV during surgery so I am not subjected to the carelessness of the general surgeon who took out my appendix.
