@alleycat, NOT AT ALL!!!! Once the diagnosis is final, I will be going through everything. The surgeon who performed the procedure was a thoracic surgeon, NOT the original pulmonologist who performed the terrifying bronchoscopy. She should not have remembered or felt a thing had she been adequately anesthetized. They are definitely not happy and, depending on results of the VATS in 2 weeks, will be finding a new pulmonologist. Her VATS was yesterday. Part of the basis for the procedure was cancer and pleural effusion. I will keep you both updated. Thank you @alleycat and @windwalker !!!!
