I am back from the stint in the hospital where they removed a lung nodule (I had the left kidney out in September).
They took the nodule from my lung out and it's also primary lung cancer - not kidney cancer spread to the lungs.
Is this survivable - the lung cancer is very small and it's stage 1. I have to have a right lower lobe lobectomy in the next few weeks.
also, was the chest tube difficult? That was probably the most painful thing I have experienced.
Can anyone give me similar experiences or any insight?
