Hi on the 23rd of September I had the lower left lobe of my left lung removed. All the lymph nodes on the chest came back clear and won't really know much more till I see the specialist again on the 20th of October. The cancer was a adenocarcinoma 35mm x 23mm x22mm and discovered after doing a home bowel screening test that you get in the mail. It came back as positive and having been a smoker in the past my GP thought it a good idea to do a chest Xray, thank heavens she did. Once the lung is all sorted I move onto sorting out the bowel cancer, can't say i'm looking forward to it as the pain from this op is only just becoming bearable, but thankful for the way things are going so far.
