    Performed lung surgery on me in Feb 2008 at Palos Hospital.2nd stage non-small cell lung cancer confined to the top section of my right lung. Surgery removed the top section along with two swollen lymph nodes. After 5-6 days in the hospital I recovered at home and followed with chemotherapy. It is now almost 8 years from surgery and periodic follow-up scans have indicated I am, at present, cancer free. I am 78 years old.
