I have had 2 CT Scans, 1 Needle Biopsy CT Guided, 1 PET/CT Fusion Scan and still no conclusive answers to 1CM Spiculated nodule in upper lobe of left lung. Between the second CT and Needle Biopsy they saw 3 additional lesions 1.2, 1.3 and 1.5 CM. Primary is sending me to a Thoracic Surgeon as he believes surgery is only option left. Does anyone have any idea if there is anything else before surgery? Evidently the hospital I will go to does VATS (Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery) which I am assuming I would be a candidate for taking the Spiculated nodule out? I would appreciate anyone who has experience with this especially next steps comments. I am really getting scared now. How long does it take to recover from VATS Surgery? How about conventional Thoracic surgery?
