We had a doctor go round this evening and one of them was present during the operation so we had a chat with her; apparently they did go in with the intention of keyhole and the frozen slice (sample to lab then proceed) but she said once they opened her up they could tell it was in deeper than the scans showed and it would not have been worth doing it that way. So they opened her up (shan't go into detail like she told us due to some people may be squeamish) and proceeded to to take the nodule out by taking the upper left quadrant of the lung out all together and be done with it.
As she is drinking ok now they was talking of taking her off IV fluids, whats going in is coming back our clear too . H er drain in her side was changed to an rocket (old school one) as apposed to the modern flakey digital one that they are seeming to be having issues with.
She is still in HDU at the moment but i expect that may change tomorrow or saturday at the latest.
I am back home now as shaz was going tired, she has a fully charged phone, blurred vision and poor hand /eye coordination so expect some bizarre texts and post's until she drops off.
No eta on when she will be out but going by the difference from yesterday to this evening i reckon maybe the weekend is not that close after all.
Incidentally the biopsy results should be with us in 2-3 weeks time, shaz is convinced it was nothing to worry about and she has now lost a quarter of a lung for nothing.
Night night folks,
