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).

  1. That incision looks too familiar. They weren't able to get a spinal morphine setup to work on me, and IV morphine made me sick, so I had to just settle for hydrocodone. Still, I was back on my bicycle 16 days later, one day after they removed 40 staples from my side. I don't see any staples on you. Did they just use glue?
