Well I am looking at a copy of the preliminary report based on the Pathology finding and the frozen results from the biopsy seem to be confirmed. I have Adenocarcinoma with a BAC (Bronchioloaveolar pattern). I am not alarmed with this discovery, a recurrence is always a possibility; I would be numb if it (JACK /JACKASS) was anything other than BAC. I hope if it comes back we do something other than a wedge resection (note) wedge resections hurt so so so bad I would rather go through another transplant rather than have a wedge resection.
My chest tubes are still in but I am a quick draw on the Morphine trigger (self med). I wonder how long it will take me to recover, it took me 2 years to get to this point I hope I don't need another 2 years to recover.
I will post some pictures later (2 years ago Stanford Transplant, 2009 Surgery Pictures, 2009 Surgery scar it is long and ugly).
