Lung Cancer - Lobectomy

Lung Cancer - Lobectomy

By an unusual chain of events I found out I had Stage 2 Lung Cancer.  I had no symptoms at all, no shortness of breath, no coughing, no coughing up blood. However, I was a smoker.


I needed a medical certificate for work as I was taking Friday off, GP wanted to do EGC on me, but unknown to him, the printer was faulty and gave a grave reading, I was then sent to local hospital for second opinion and given a chest xray, and it was then they found a mass on the lung, and a mass in each breast.


On the 30 March 2019 my life was turned upside down, I was one of the lucky ones, after PET Scans and Biopsies, it had not spread to other parts of my body, and it was operable and I underwent a Lobectomy on 7th June.  My breasts turned out to be non cancerous and just dense.


I have been home from hospital a few days, and just wondering if anyone else has had this operation, and wish to share the ups and downs of their journey.

Hi Frankie,


I've been fortunate enough to not to have to do this.

But I would like to offer my congratulations on passing the tests clear!

Well done.
