April Lung Biopsy

This month I got scheduled for a CT guided lung biopsy. The procedure is done by going down the throat and getting a sample from the inside. This is less invasive and decreases the likelihood of lung collapse.

Unfortunately the tissue obtained was normal lung tissue, so it was a washout. So now I go back to Nashville again today for a consultation for another biopsy that is more invasive. This one will be laproscopic. It will involve a hospital stay and then several weeks of recovery. Apparently they will take a wedge out of my lungs.

Hopefully this one will work and will give me a good report.
