In Limbo! in INTRODUCE YOURSELF! Posted August 5, 2012 Hi Patricia I had my upper left lobe removed in Sept. 2007. They were just going to do a resection but in the OR, the surgeon changed his mind and removed the entire upper lobe. I had 4 rounds of adjuvant chemo after surgery. I was staged at 1B and they did not recommend chemo. I argued that I did want it and they finally agreed. But they wrote on my chart that it wasn't recommended and studies did not support my decision. I would certainly recommend it if you have a choice. I am not sure if you will have radiation if they do a resection and remove everything. I do almost as much now as I did prior to surgery. I do not play sports now but that is more to do with COPD than the lobectomy. Take care.
