    Lung wedge resection

    Other Care

    The above surguery revealed that the cancer had indee spread to my lungs, they removed two tumors in my left lung. Currently I have four nodules in my right lung, one which is steadily growing but very slowly. Drs plan to start chemotherapy again once the tumor is >1cm. which will probably be within the next three months.
