Hi everyone I had a lobectomy done about 30 years ago then a pneumonectomy done 10 years later which left me with 1 lung after having cancer of different types 4 times in other places in have just been diagnosed with liver carsonoid of which I have 2 I do not drink and I have not smoked for 40 years plus however the consultant was amazed to find out that the tumors were from my lung ops all those years ago they told me at the time no chemo would be required as tumors were all contained within the removed lung lobes obviously there must have been stray cells floating around so had I had chemo I probably would not have liver cancer now.so I would suggest anyone having a lung removed. have chemo as well just to be sure and not to Finnish up like me. Treatments for my tumors can only be done one way I cannot have chemotherapy now as they say I could Finnish up with sepsis also they would normally use surgery but for me it's impossible with 1 lung to have general anesthetic so they are doing an arterial embolisation meaning they will access my liver blood vessels via my groin and feed a tool along and use a sealer and close off the vein to the tumors starving them of blood it's not a cure but will slow the growth and if Needed it can be done again mickmm
