Thank you – yes will post more after each step. The knowledge shared here is very important. I am not afraid as much as a get it done person. That is why I ask about the timing. In doing so I just realized it was 3.5 months between incidental finding of the spot on the lung to biopsy, PET scans, to surgery. It seemed to fly but truly did not happen overnight. During this process they also found a large mass in my maxillary sinus. Because it was so large and "glowed" such more than the lung they took it out first – about 2 months start to finish. 2 months later started the official lung process. I seem to grow things that really do not belong so the quicker I know that the quicker we can determine action – whatever that might be.
