Any advice?

I quit smoking at the age of 50 y/o, didn't start until 30. 1 1/2 months later, accidently found nodules uncalcified in right lower lung. (Feb 2012) The VA I go to as a veteran said they would repeat ct every 90 days for two years. Well, the results from 1st repeat showed all nodules doubled plus in size. The largest went from 1.4 cm to 3.1 cm. They are going to see me Monday, I guess the plan of action will be a pet scan and surgical consult. How fast is the normal response time to surgery? I am curious because I will be out of work and I want to prepare. Does treatment speed up or do you think they will wait a period of time before they treat me? Any info would help with my anxiety. I am trying to stay positive but I am also a realist, we don't live forever, if I expect only the best outcome, I could become really depressed if the news falls short, I just want to be prepared to lessen my families anxiety. How can I put myself out there for a clinical trial? I appreciate any input on any of my issues. Thanks
