Cyberknife

Has anyone experienced cyberknife surgery or therapy?
Does insurance cover it?

I'm hoping they are wrong in all kind of ways but they may have discovered a tumor in my left lung.

I'm hoping they are wrong too. From the evidence it would seem that surgery is only effective in the very earliest stage of the disease.

Never heard of it, but in my scant research, I'd bet it was way cheaper than an invasive surgical session, and therefor likely covered. And if it's effective and needed, do it! And maybe you have nothing to worry about. They have discovered something. It may be something of concern, and it may be nothing. All you know is that they have discovered something and that's better than missing it! I'm hoping it's nothing and wishing you the best. But push for fast answers as hard as you have to and then attack if you need to! Good thoughts and all the best. I look forward to hearing good news!

It's ironic. I don't smoke, never have. I don't consume sodas or put sugar in my coffee or tea. My diet is light to mild on junk food. I try to eat organic.

I work with people who smoke, drink sodas all day long, and eat nothing but processed food. And they don't exercise. They are fine.

What's wrong with that? Maybe I don't drink enough beer. That's it.

Thanks for positive thoughts and wishes.
I've never been in a hospital before. Been healthy all these years. But I've always said its not a matter of if but when.
I guess I was hoping to make it another 15 or 20 years before I had to go through it.
Having never been exposed to it, I'm a bit terrified. All the needles and tubes.

I hear ya on the irony! Ridiculously unfair, but your body will be in much better shape to combat and recover from this, if need be, because of the way you've lived, than any of those you've mentioned who's lifestyle will eventually catch up with them.

More beer? Agreed, increase the beer. Removing it from your diet won't help you live longer, it'll just feel that way! ;-) Good thoughts!

Agree 100% sad news but it sounds like you're in good shape to bounce back.

Lots of luck! All the best

My dad is going through the same irony, sadly. Healthiest guy until he wasn't. Only advice I can give you is don't wait to get the second opinion(s) you may need if treatment isn't working how you'd hope/expect. Hoping for all the best for you and that you get a positive diagnosis.
