I have two tumors of Spindle-cell carcinoid
in my remaining right lung. I will be under-going surgery, but I wondered how easily does
this spread. These are my 3rd tumors in one

    Hi. I just had surgery for the same thing, one month ago today. I was told by my surgeon and pulmonologist that this type of cancer does not usually spread. Sounded like you have had this before, if I may ask, how long does it usually take to get back (physically) to where you were before surgery. Seems like it is taking a long time, I'm pretty sick of it. Write back if you are able. Thanks
