Can I please get some feedback as to how long recovery from a lobectomy takes and how it has affected one's life? My husband had NCSLC and was previously treated with cyberknife in Oct. 2008 as they said he was inoperable because it was located right at the bronchi and major arteries (hilar region) and had been NED until last month. Since then he has had a bronchoscopy now showing poorly differentiated NCSLC favoring adeno (last time they said squamous). We went for a 2nd opinion yesterday to MD Anderson in Orlando, Fl and Dr. Herrera is wanting another CAT scan, a VQ scan, a pulmonary function test, an MRI of the brain and depending on the outcome of these tests said he would be able to perform surgery and reconstruct the bronchi. We also have a 2nd opinon with the radiologist at MD Anderson because the radiologist from Kaplan Cancer Center in WPB said that he was able to do Cyberknife again, but Dr. Herrara is thinking he has had too much radiation already. But my sister is adamant in saying that we should be looking at surgery to get rid of the whole area and that I'm thinking wrong about the Cyberknife. I'm so frightened I don't know what to think anymore. Any responses would be very appreciated.
