Surgeon Update Tuesday Afternoon

Met the surgeon. He said that he took a deep wedge out of Robbie’s upper lobe in his lung to get the largest tumor. It was larger around than a silver dollar. He took three out of his lower lobe the size of quarters. He said surgery went better than expected, because he was able to remove everything he found.

He will know more when pathology results come back to know the percentage that was killed by chemo, which will determine treatment.

He plans to do the other lung when this one heals. Will have chest tube for a couple more days.
