Lung Cancer: Seeking Post-Diagnosis and Possible Treatment Wisdom
This week I had a lung nodule biopsy procedure at Stanford Health Center and the first results shows lung cancer (well-differentiated adenocarcinoma). He recommended some next steps with tests and consultations. We briefly discussed some possible treatments. Later in the week, I got the lymph node results and they are clear. There was a test showing a low level of PD-L1 protein so if I understand correctly, that means a low likelihood of immunotherapy being effective.
What do you wish you had known after your diagnosis and especially if a lobectomy was/is recommended, what would you have wished to know beforehand?
I am very confident in the care I received & will be sticking with this facility and professionals for care. I am in a strange calm state — maybe because I finally have an answer after more than 2 months and because I had such good care that gave me confidence.
