    Right Lung Surgery

    My breast cancer metastacized to my right lung. My thoracic surgeon removed three spots of cancer, stappled the areas, and reinflated my lung. Again I was blessed with an excellent surgeon.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I went back into chemo, but this time I was allergic to the Carboplatin so it had to be stopped. Currently, I am on hold while we do scans to watch for more cancer.
