Linking you to resources and support in the lung cancer community!
I know how you feel. But this should be just a temporary feeling. After 10 years of being cancer free (lower right lobe was removed) two very tiny nodules showed up in my left upper lobe. I was operated on and they found another one and had chemo and that was over 3 years ago. I fell very optimistic. You're waiting an extra month is a tough call but it is yours to make. Make sure that it is the right thing for you and your family by asking them? The best of luck.
For what it's worth, we celebrated 2 Thanksgivings in the hospital when my mom was recovering from surgeries. It wasn't ideal (especially for my mom who didn't have much of an appetite for all the foods she loved) but the turkey was still on the table. You are likely right though - and really only 3 weeks. Even less likely to make a difference.
Thank you so very much for the nutrition links. I have read them and saved to my favorites. A wealth of good information, Thanks for the support to delay surgery a few weeks. This has been going on since April or sooner for all I know so I figured a few weeks more probably won't make a difference. It was the one thing I still have some control over.....
