edward Posted October 16, 2004 Share Posted October 16, 2004 Hi, I am new to this board. Iam aged 77 years. I had a successful lobectomy to remove a small adenocarcinoma from my right lung in July. I am interested to know how long it might take for some one my age to fully recover from this operation. Since July, I continue to feel tired and breathless (I cannot walk very far before stopping). I feel as if I have no energy or motivation. I also experience a strange sensation where the lobe was removed. I liken this feeling to that of a stump or box inside me that drags on the inside wall of my chest as I breath in and out. Is this normal and if so will the feeling pass soon? Is there anything I can do to regain my health and strength more quickly? Thanking you... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
