1st time I've done this so fingers crossed : ) I was diagnosed and hopefully cured in 2010. I was admitted to hospital in the june with a suspected blood clot after being treated for pleurisy. After numerous tests I was diagnosed with pneumonia and discharged. Follow up showed no change to my xray, had a bronchscopy and ct a couple of weeks later, results a stubborn pneumonia. Had another bronchscopy, ct and pet scan in september. Returned to see my consultant and was told they suspected it was malignant but not certain. Had an upper left lobectomy November using vats and 2 weeks later got a definite diagnosis of lung cancer. Pathological report staged it at a pt2n0m0, poorly differentiated sarcomatoid pleomorphic carcinoma (still a bit in the dark at what that means). Apart from tiring and getting a little breathless (probs down to me getting older) I'm doing fine.
