I am a basket case right now. I went for my surgery consult (after many tests) and it is suggested that my upper left lobe be removed, with a 10% chance that he might have to remove my whole left lung. Has anyone had this done?
A quick background; two years ago I was diagnosed with stage 2 NSCLC on my upper left lobe. It was the size of a golf ball, due to the location they could not operate. I did many rounds of chemo and radiation. I was NED up until 5 months ago. The cancer is back and in the same spot, I can not have anymore radiation to that area and all three of my doctors agree that surgery is my best option.
