In Reply to: upcoming lung surgery posted by nicole on June 23, 2000 at 22:34:44:

: I have been fighting cancer for almost 3 years now that has metastisized to my lungs. I have done numorous rounds of chemo and radiation, and have had other surgeries. This one though is scary. I will have my right lung removed on Tuesday June 27th. I have several tumors, but one is growing out of control and has taken over most of my lung and is closing in on my heart. I cannot do any other treatments until this is taken care of due to having infection behind the middle lobe that has collapsed. I have never been so scared until this. The doctors tell me that 1 in 10 die from the surgery and 1 in 4 have complications. Tehy tell me since I am only 28 taht I have a good chance though. I know that if I don't have this done though I will die. I have always been so positive and believed I would beat this. I still have hope, but now it is getting harder. I just had to vent. Please keep me in your prayers that day. Thanks! Nicole
