Hi, This is Madonna. Many of you may know that I have been seeing doctor's for a fungus issue in my left lung. During my treatment for said fungus, the surgeon also drew attention to a spot in my right lung. After my wedge resection in September 2016 to remove the fungal ball, I was put on an anti-fungal medication with a follow-up to be performed in 4 months. I returned in February for my follow-up cat scan and appointment with the Infectious Disease Doc. When she examined the scan, she saw the spot in the right lung had grown so I was scheduled for a needle biopsy that was performed on March 2. On March 6th, the Pulmonary doctor called to tell me the biopsy came back as cancer and adenocarcinoma specifically. I met with the surgeon and an oncologist on March 15 and surgery was scheduled for March 23rd.
That's where we are now - surgery, 3-5 days in the hospital and then an unknown period at home for recovery.
Ken and I will keep this site updated as much as possible during the hospitalization and recovery and positive energy is always appreciated.
