They found a single lung nodule 7 years after my whipple on a routine CT scan that included the chest for the first time. We waited a year and it had grown slightly so we decided to go after it.

Because of the relatively small size (1cm) and location, the doctor went in to do a wedge resection or a lobectomey depending if it was positive for cancer. It was positive so they did the lobectomey. There was no spread to lymph nodes, etc. so surgery was the only necessary solution.

Continue to be clear since then.

If there are multiple nodules then it makes sense to start with chemo since there could be more that aren't showing up.
