hi all havnt slept for 3 days now going into hospital tomorrow for a medialstinoscopy to see if cancer has spread to lymph nodes if it has i have to have chemo done before i have surgery but if lymph nodes are ok then i can have the surgery straight away but they dont know how much of the lung they have to take away but that also depends on how close the tumour is to heart and other organs they reckon they might just be able to take the top lobe of the lung but it also could be all of it anyway gonna need chemo after it, they said if tumour is too close to heart they will try to shrink it with chemo and radiotherapy, they give me codeine to try and surpress the cough but it makes me feel worse so ive stopped it thanks for listening people

  • I hope it all goes well.

  • Wishing you all the very best for your surgery &/or treatment - I had the lower lobe of my left lung removed due to a tumour; fortunately it hadn't spread to the lymph nodes - that was four years ago next month and I am still in remission, so I am very thankful - I hope yours goes just as well, and I'll be praying for you too. Stay positive - I believe it really does help. xx

  • Hoping for the best possible outcome for you and the advice about staying positive is good advice. My matron tells me that being positive does have a beneficial effect medically.

    Come back and let us know how things go. Every good wish.

  • Will be thinking of you Ganza tomorrow .and hope you get some sleep tonight. Remember a happy moment and concentrate on that as hopefully you drift to sleep. Best wishes for your op and chemo and recuperation. xxx

  • Ganza doing without sleep all that time won't have been helping you and you must have a very anxious mind which the morning sometimes calms. After a good sleep in hospital here's hoping you take all the care that's going and remember everyone on here is thinking about you. Good Luck xxx

  • Wishing you the very best for tomorrow and hope the end result is one with you coming out the other end as well as close to being all in one piece as they can manage.

    The uncertainty is a draining and anxious time, please try and get some sleep and proper rest, it will help you
