Newb...question on broncostomy

Hi, all, first post here...I have 2 masses on my right lung, spots on liver, and'growths' on adrenal gland's...I had the bronc this am, and Dr told my precious wife afterwards that she was not able to get the scope down to the area of the 2 masses on lung's, but did take tissue samples from enlarged lymph nodes.Have any of you had the experiance where the pulmonologist was un-able to get to the site of masses? I guess we will be told the results of the biopsy next Friday, and see what Dr has in mind after this.Thnx for any response.

Re: Newb...question on broncostomy

Im sorry there werent any replies......I can only say that my father in law was told last week also that "the masses were unreachable" and that they would have to do a TTNA biopsy (needle biopsy) thru the side. That biopsy is not done I have no news there. BUT, I can tell you the masses they couldnt reach were in the diaphragm and next to the aorta.
I hope things are getting better on your end. Please post your progress for those of us in the same boat......
Thanks and good luck.
