A new worry

I am finally home. A 7 hour ordeal turned into a two day ordeal as my right lung collapsed right after the biopsy. I thought I was a goner. Could NOT breathe. They had to put a tube into the lung. So I was monitored all night, no sleep as they kept checking on me. At one point my BP went down way too low so had to have meds for that. I understand the results of the biopsy are in but I have to wait to hear from my lung doctor to go to his office.

Tush, the doctor did do another CT scan prior to the biopsy because he wanted to make sure the biopsy was needed. He said ..."it's small but we need to biopsy it." He said the shape is two very tiny circles that look like they are merging together -- and both together are less than one inch in size.

So tonight I hope I can sleep and hope to hear good news soon. Sorry I couldn't check in sooner, was out of it.

Jeaniegirl,

I'm sorry. What a terrible ordeal. Thank goodness you are home and safe now. Hopefully your results today will be negative.

The lung collapse is what happened to my mother. Her lung capacity wasn't good, and she ended up on a ventilator for over a week. Then she got pneumonia, and they had to clean out her lungs. Thankfully, she didn't remember any of it and kept asking why she was in the hospital after she woke up.

UPDATE:

Got the report on Wednesday. The spot is cancer. Good news is - it's stage one. Today I was sent to the Oncologist and Monday I will meet with the surgeon. Then my lung doc, the Oncologist and the surgeon will talk and decide best route of treatment. I prefer surgery immediately.

Meanwhile, my laptop has picked a bad time to screw up - but I will post updates as I get information The Oncologist said I'm in excellent help and the cancer spot is a little lest than the size of a dime, all in my favor.

I will do whatever it takes to beat this

Thank you all ~~

I'm so sorry you are having to deal with this, but feel confident about your prognosis since they caught it so early.

My cancer was stage 1; I had surgery and no radiation or chemo. I hope it's that easy of a remedy for you!

Number4, I so hope my situation turns out like yours did.

Things are moving rapidly now since Wednesday. I was set up to meet Oncologist yesterday and I feel that went well. He explained the Pet Scan where I could understand. He said he feels it can be taken out with surgery if it's not into the lymp nodes. He said one lymp node lit up on the Pet scan but it's so small they normally wouldn't do anything but watch it right now. I've already been set up with an appointment with a surgeon for Monday at 12:30. Turns out a friend of my daughter (since grade school!) is the surgeon's RN surgical nurse and she said he is the absolute best. In addition, one of my friend's had him for a surgeon and he also said he's really good.

The 'team' of my three doctors (and two additional doctors) will decide what they feel the best course of treatment is. A panel of docs. I am still hoping it's surgery - but when I found out they would go through the front and separate my rib cage, that took away some of enthusiasm for surgery. That sounds painful. Whatever they decide -- surgery, radiation or chemo - will probably start at the end of next week.

My friend who passed from Covid - his graveside service is Thursday morning and I so hope I can be there for his wife and son.

I feel okay, just tired and have some shortness of breath. And I'm sleeping more. I've put some work on hold and handed off a couple of cases to another attorney. My daughter has put off moving to her new place for a couple of months so she can be here for me and to take care of my puppies and my herd of outside barn cats.

I want to thank all of you for checking on me. I so appreciate it.

I'm glad you have a team working to get you through this. You sound pretty confident in them. Also glad DD will be there for you. MOJO for all you face to get through it. Thinking of you.

This all sounds like my family member who is going through breast cancer treatment. It was also found early but taken very seriously and treatment plan organized with urgency.

Finding what life could have been....... Why didn't I see it?
