    • Being that it was 20 years ago, I had the open Lobectomy.  In order to enter the chest cavity they break several ribs to spread them apart.  Of course they have to get your muscles out of the way also.  My doctors did a great job removing my tumor was up in the apex ( near my shoulder) and also all the right upper lobe.  I had a chest tube after surgery for a while. It took time to get over the surgery.  After about 8 weeks they sent me to the YMCA for water exercises to get my back in shape.  My rib bones never did heal back together so even today I don't want to wear anything that "sqeezes" my chest. All was well worth it however-----------I am still alive and breathing.  Donna G

    • Many studies conclude that D3 improves LC survival. from https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5690785/ "In the current, meta-analysis was based on 17 prospective cohort studies, with 138,858 participants with 4368 incident cases. Thus, this meta-analysis provides the most up-to-date epidemiological evidence supporting higher circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D is helpful for lung cancer. A dose–response analysis revealed that increasing 10 nmol/L dose of circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D was associated with an 8% reduction in the risk of lung cancer risk and a 7% reduction in the risk of lung cancer mortality. Subgroup meta-analyses in study quality, number of participants, and number of cases showed consistent with the primary findings. Several plausible pathways may reasonable for the relationship between 25-hydroxyvitamin D and lung cancer. Vitamin D metabolites play a cytostatic effect most dependent on vitamin D receptor. Previous study found that 25-hydroxyvitamin D plays the role of inhibiting lung cancer cells growth in mouse epidermal cells formation.[34] The immunomodulatory function of vitamin D metabolites may be an important mechanism for vitamin D in prevent lung cancer; 25-hydroxyvitamin D can inhibit the activity of mammalian target of rapamycin in lung cancer cells and raise the level of protein expression, which can promote the autophagy of tumor cells.[35] Meanwhile, 25-hydroxyvitamin can induce the expression of major antioxidant protein–superoxide dismutase SOD1 and SOD2, thereby inhibiting the formation of lung cancer to some extent.[36] In addition, vitamin D can regulate immunological function of lung epithelial cells and inhibit cellular proliferation and angiogenesis while promoting cellular differentiation and apoptosis."
