Mary B : VA
In Jan. 2013 I had a CT prior to an endo/colonoscopy to determine the reason for abdominal pain. I found our I had gallstones and needed surgery. In addition to that news I heard I also had a 1x1.3 cm. speculated nodule in my left lower lobe. Talk about terror. After a barrage of tests surgery for a lobectomy was done in Feb. and 3 mo. later gallbladder removal. I am so thankful for gallstones. I do know that early detection is the key to long term survival and as a celebration I got a tattoo. I showed it to my surgeon and told him to make a chart notation that I had ENOUGH of this disease, scare, tests, etc.
