Brent spoke with my pulmonologist this am, to let him know the plan. When Brent mentioned how concerned with the tumor's proximity to the right mainstem the thoracic surgeon had been based on my PET, my pulmonologist was very surprised and adamant that the tumor was a good distance away. He should know since he was down there with a scope!! I hope so. I would like to avoid a pneumonectomy if at all possible. The pulmonologist was going to speak with the surgeon today about that as well as maintenance lung meds he wants me on....So, cross your fingers!
