Bob, I like that you sound positive and optimistic. You have inspired me to exercise and eat more responsibly. I am 12 months from my last chemo. I also had an upper left lobectomy July 2011 and this was my second bout with cancer. I hadn't changed my habits much and I really needed to hear your story. Please keep me posted on your recovery. God Bless!
First, I am glad the team name has been changed as it was quite negative. I have been through one upper left lobectomy and one tumor on the eye. I thought I might have a respite and beef up my exercises. My surgeon just told me I have a spot on the upper and lower right lobes and he has me scheduled for surgery the 23 of Jan.. He said he is being conservative this time and will go into each lobe and remove them using robotic surgery. ( He calls it playing "Whack-a-Mole) The problem comes after surgery as he said the lungs would be quite bruised and it would take me a while to rehab. The good news is that if I hadn't been exercising the way I have been he wouldn't consider surgery. As the surgeon used to train triathletes I took that as a compliment. By losing the weight I did and getting into shape using SparkPeople has helped give me a better chance of a full recovery.
