I am scheduled for VATs next Tuesday to remove a 2.1 cm lung nodule in my lower right lobe. CT and PET/CT confirm it has doubled in size in 3 months and has high FDG uptake. I know this surgery can be very straight forward and if all goes well, I can expect a fairly quick recovery. I would appreciate positive feedback regarding things that might help this procedure go better or make me more prepared (please don't scare me!)
So if you have had VATs and there is anything that you wished you had known ahead of time because it would have helped you pre or post op, please let me know. Thanks!
