Hi, So I had my follow up post surgury and biopsy this past Tuesday.
My surgeon said regarding Stas that if he thought I needed a completion lobectomy he would be doing it. He also said yes some Drs will say if Stas is present you need a lobectomy. He said its still new and there is alot they dont know about Stas.
I also spoke to another surgeon who thought they had completed a lobectomy on me and said thats what you do.Then I explained that I didnt have a lobectomy.He went on to say that the team at the facility I was in is a great team. Otherwise Im feeling fine. Ty so much for thinking and checking back with me. Hope you are doing good.

Spread through air spaces (STAS) is a spreading phenomenon of lung cancers, which is defined as tumor cells within air spaces in the lung parenchyma beyond the edge of the main tumor
