Lung surgery

For those not in the know , the bowel cancer surgery was a success. How ever one of the scans last year shown up a module that the doctor was not happy with on the left lung. Upon follow up scans and tests they are not sure what it is other than the fact it should not be there.

So today we arrived a week early due to a cancellation to have the aforementioned growth removed . Having arrived at 07:30 and checked in we huncer down for the wait.

I have to say shaz does not seem as nervous as she was last time but then like last time  she is on tranquillisers to take the edge off.

We have been info that she won't be going down until this afternoon so we are in for quite a wait by the looks of it.

News update still today 01/02/2017

Sharon went down at about 14:20, I have just had dinner . So now it is time to play the waiting game.

Tidbit of info , the surgery is called a frozen wedge it is where they go in as keyhole and take out what they can and sent it for sampling upstairs. They will get feedback this way on if it is a cancer and if so if it is either a primary lung or a secondary bowel. We are all hoping for a primary as the latter would imply the bowel cancer had not been fully removed, and intact had spread.

If they can removed all of it while performing keyhole then they will, however they may need to convert to open if they feel they can't be sure to remove it all.

By the way I hate the formatting of the blogger ap, it is a nightmare to do anything with it.

right update , just a quick one mind as it is five to twelve at night same day

Shaz came out of surgery and was in HDU she is groggy as you can imagine , the Epi is out and has been replaced with an IV morphine drip . I am unsure at this time as to if they successfully identified and removed the lump via keyhole as none of the nurses could really tell me anything , so i left at 11pm , messaged everyone i could think off and updated Facebook. quick blog update to let you all know whats what . My plan is to get a few hours kip and be there in time for when the consultant does there rounds between 8-10 am.

Please hop over to Sharons page where i have been keeping on top of the updates
