So i had my second bronchoscopy in the last 5 days yesterday, This takes the total number of bronchoscopies to 7 over the past year. I am still undergoing treatment for stage 4 kidney cancer in my lungs at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Phoenix. This last bronchoscopy involved using a laser to push back the tumors in my right lung enough to install a stint. The procedure was very successful. My breathing and oxygen saturation have greatly improved.
My right middle and lower lung is still good. However, the upper lobe of my right lung is still not receiving air due to being blocked by tumors. Now my oncologist, Dr. Walter Quan Jr. will be working on a new treatment plan to kill the remaining tumors.
This last procedure has bought more time for me to “Live to fight another day.” I don’t fight this battle alone, the Lord Jesus Christ is with me and so are so many of you.
