Diagnosis "Lung Cancer"

I was moving along nicely in my life until February1st. I was told by my doctor that they had found a tumor on my right lung. My next appointment was on February15th with a surgeon.

Operation scheduled for February28th.

I had a "lobectomy". That is the removal of a lobe of the lung.

It all sounds so terrible but I am so fortunate that they were able to operate as most cancers of this kind are diagnosed too late. I did have a lot of problems going into surgery .My liver was severely damaged in 2002,with the discovery of "Cirrhosis". I have high blood pressure, angina, and have had seizures in the past. The odds were 1 in 20 that I would NOT make it,

Well, I made it! I never had any pain after the operation and I was released from the hospital after four days.

I hope that those of you that are having to have surgery can read this and find that not all cancer stories have bad endings.........
