@ann0616 I am new to this site, but I see you are in Madison, WI? I am in Milwaukee. I was first diagnosed in 2010. The Pulmonologists at Froedert did not know the correct treatment protocol initially, so I had a recurrence within months. I saw an ID in Chicago, who out me on a more aggressive treatment for 18 month. I was good for 6 years! I just was rediagnosed last summer. My doctor at Froedert seems more educated this time, but he is recommending a lobectomy. I am pursuing a second opinion at National Jewish. What is your story? ~Angie

@angiejohnson, Hi there. Is there any way you can get to a Mayo Clinic for your second opinion on the lobectomy instead of NJH? I say that because I feel like NJH is quick to do lobectomies.
