3 months ago, they found 2 nodules in my lung (6mm & 3mm). They were only able to removed the 6mm one since the 3mm was too small. Right now I'm a bit unsure of what to do.
My cardiothoracic surgeon says that since the nodule was removed with clean margins, it would be best to wait 3 months, get a CT, and see what happens then.
My chemo doctor says that we should start on ifosfamide (6 cycles).
I'm split between the two. Part of me wants to do the chemo route, but the last time I was on chemo, I ended up with heart failure & sepsis. I barely made it out alive. At the same time, I don't want to put it off because I'm afraid if I wait too long the chemo drug won't be effective, and the cancer will not be controllable.
Any advice is much appreciated. Thank you so much!
