Merry,
I'm curious as to why you are waiting til June or after to receive SBRT.? Or do they want to see if there is a change during that period ?
For me, Pulmonary rehab has not been mentioned. I was given a Pulmonary Function Test prior to both surgeries and results were good. After both surgeries, I was encouraged to periodically use the provided Spirometer. My wedge surgery was two months ago and the sprirometer shows I'm back to pre-surgery levels. Through all of this , a Pulmonary specialist has not been mentioned or recommended . I'll have to ask the oncologist at my next followup. Thanks

Good morning Stan- Due to the amount of lung tissue that I have left, because of my past lung cancers my team waits until it's absolutely necessary, without doing a biopsy, that my lesions will grow and need to be removed. Quite a sentence, eh? 🙂 I don't mind because if I wait until June, as my lungs heal from the radiation I won't be able to be very active. And during the summer months in NE, it's very humid and I have to stay in for the most part anyway!
