Hi, my hubby has just had his first lung resection on his right lung to remove 2 lung nodules and will be having a 2nd resection on his left lung in 3 weeks time. The information hasn't been the best and we were lead to believe that following the operations he would go forward with 4 monthly scans (I think it was 4 monthly). However, the surgeon has now casually mentioned checking to make sure the glands around his lungs aren't infected, but we won't know the results until September. If they're infected I'm assuming he will be referred to an oncologist. Does anyone know if the glands are likely to be infected? Or had a similar experience? Will this likely mean chemo?
Many thanks in advance.
