I was diagnosed last month and only recently had my lobectomy. My surgeon was amazing but I find that I have no idea about anything. I don't want to be one of those people that constantly call the medical team to pester them with questions.
At this point its adenocarcinoma, stage 1 lung cancer. All I know is that the lobe that was taken will be sliced thinly and tested for spread in the lymph nodes. I have no idea how long this might take, has anyone got a rough timeline?
Also, I don't know what the timeline are like. How soon should I be expected to try and walk for 30 minutes, when should I stop celebrating being able to brush my teeth? I'm only in my early 30s and the fact that I haven't been able to do a lot that I used to is really worrying me.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
