Lung Cancer Diagnosis After Surgery

I had recently at the time - June 2014 - hard hip replacement surgery. During my hospital stay my oxygen levels dropped! Took me immediately for CT Scan thinking I had a blood clot - No, l had lung cancer. So because l was 62 years old and just had major surgery they deemed me inoperable, so they have me on stereotactic radiation. Just being used in trials in Canada. So I'm basically waiting for it to return - scared always!
