Going in for surgery Friday for lobectomy on right lung. Diagnosed with mass on right lung in addition to another primary cancer in my left lung (which will be dealt with after my surgery on the right) Stressed out and scared. Was told this is adino (sp?) type of cancer and is NOT caused by smoking. Was also told chances are I will not have to go thru chemo or radiation. I'm hoping this is the case. I fear this surgery altho reading many posts, some have had the whole lung removed, etc., much worse than my situation. Again, this cancer was found by accident. Had a slight tickle/cough, my primary chalked it up to allergies..it continued..I changed primary dr. and he immediately sent me for a chest xray, this is how it all began. Anyone who had a lobe removed from their lung, I would welcome your comments about the procedure and recovery. God Bless!
