I wanted it out! Some Dr's like to keep it in, experiment with different chemos and do more scans. Not for me, I was adamant to have it taken out first. I am glad I did.

Mine was VATs, it was so easy compared to liver resection. Am now debating whether to go with adjuvant chemo again. I was all ok if I needed to do chemo, but when the topic of "better save chemo option as much as possible" came up, I got a bit chicken and wanted to back out....
Still thinking... What did your oncologist say?

I had saved your thread & now getting around to reading it all with a reply.
Instead of just trusting my Onc, I consult with a Pulmonologist.
Since my lungs are strong: he says for me to NOT let anyone cut on my lungs. (I see at the Club that many have had successfully had thingies removed.) At this time I am doing Folfori chemo and things have shrunk dramatically. ‘Am blessed. Still all of this is scary. In 8 weeks we will measure again by CT scan; which is still an educated guess what we are seeing.
It is hard to biopsy lungs without risk of puncture. Did a Broncoscopy; but the scope can’t reach the lower lobe where scans show cancer.
