Hi Shaun,

Welcome, Sorry your about your mom. Did your mom just have part of her lung removed? A lobectomy with the vats procedure, or did she have an entire lung removed. Either or the dr probably would not have removed the lung if your mom could not function properly and breath. If the stage was a 1 or 2 then the cancer would have been caught early which is a good thing. The fact that the dr said it was a great success is very good news. When the cancer is caught early the prognosis is usually good and your mom should be okay. Please reply back with more information. You and your mom are in my prayers. Lori

You should have heard back from your doctor by now about the lymph nodes. Call him and ask him for the lab results. Be proactive. Let us know what happens. It just may be that somehow they missed making the phone call to you.

(((Hugs))) and prayers for you and your Mom
