Hi Teri3, good news ! Just wondering, my wife has bilateral mets 15 total, with the largest measuring 1.2 cm left lung w/14 other nodules measuring less than 9 mm. Currently seeing oncologists @ Roswell Cancer Inst. and Sloan Kettering which neither have not mentioned anything about addressing these except to take a wait n see approach w/Chemo. I’m very anxious/frustrated on her lung mets. Is this standard ? I guess my question to ALL are there too many of these mets to consider surgery ? 2nd question is there an excellent place (hospital) that performs VATS/Lung surgeries on mets that I can learn more about ?
