    Decision Point

    It was a hard decision to take the whole lung out. It was recommended for my best chance for cure. Knowing what I know now I would have never taken the entire lung. I made the best choice I could with what was being recommended and also was supported through a 2nd opinion.

    Chemo is very hard for me as it is for most people I expect. A lot of feeling hopeless, sad and afraid.

    Body part/function

    Loss

    I felt a great loss over having one lung. The amount of pain was something I could not have prepared for. I felt like I was getting a death sentence. I felt a loss for myself and my family.
