Evening, I had a call today from my cancer consultant.
They have discussed my case and note the following.
The full body CT scan PET scan has confirmed there is no other cancer found in the body. They recon due to my bullous emphysema if they try to get biopsies it would most likely cause the lung to collapse and they might not be able to save the lung.
They could leave the 2 cancer nodules alone and scan me every 3 moths to see if they have grown etc or go straight to surgery and remove a third of the lung containing the 2 cancer nodules.
All my stats have came back stating I am very fit and healthy even my lung function sprioromoity test came back looking great with a FEV1% of 92%, not bad for someone with wide spread bullous emphysema in both lungs.
So the question I pose to my community of experts, its a no brainier to have the third of the lung removed, but will i be restricted after the bad part is removed, is the operation dangerous, what like will the recovery be and any other help-advice would be much appreciated xxxxx
