RE: LUNG BIOPSY
In October of 1995, I underwent a resection of my left lung. This surgery
was major and necessary to remove many large (15cm) cysts.
However, part of the procedure involved placing a tube (bronchoscope) down
the throat under general anesthia. I do believe that a biopsy can be done by
the bronchoscope rather than the more extensive surgery.
My recovery from the resection was 6 weeks and I was in excellent physical
condition going into the surgery. Hope this helps.
