I am a bit emotional this evening, I think the last few months have caught up with me! My mum has recently been diagnosed with early stage Adenocarcinoma in both lungs. Her case is quite unusual in that it is 2 new cancers and the scans etc have not shown any spread elsewhere which we are very grateful for. It has taken a few months to get the full diagnosis and she has been told she will have surgery on both lungs with no further treatment after which was quite a surprise but again we are so grateful. She has an appointment with the surgeon this Thursday to discuss the surgery and I just feel so anxious about it. It has taken 4 months to get her diagnosis and it has been an emotional roller coaster to say the least! I feel a bit silly even saying this as we have been told old that she has a very good prognosis and they are treating her with curative intent but I just feel so worried - what if her her situation has changed in the time it's taken to get the diagnosis, how long will she wait for the surgery, about her having the surgery, how she will be after.... the list goes on!
Does anyone have experience of surgery on both lungs?
Thanks in advance x
