Good morning from North Carolina, I had my upper right lobe and half of the lower lobe removed Friday, March 13. I have/had non-small cell carcinoma. The two cancer spots were different types, which the doctor says is actually a good thing. I am still in the hospital (yes, during this scary time) with some complications. I am hoping to find answers to these complications and whether they are "normal" or not. Thanks for letting me join. Please stay safe everyone.
My best bud and daddy had a lobectomy that removed most of his right lung in Hamilton Ontario Canada which is 1hr from where he lives with my mom and 1,5 hr from where I live in Pickering. His surgery went well but he developed pneumonia and a bronch fistula...it’s been a month and he remains in ICU with a tracheotomy...he is still struggling and remains highly sedated..:.i need stories of hope!!!! He is an emotional person and is loosing his will to fight....I’m lucky to have a great friend who is allowing my mom and I to stay at her house but the long days and being away from my husband and son is exhausting and mother has health issues as well... not driving.... we need hope and stories of success.... doctor had been amazing and all the medical staff but we are very worried
