Surgery again


Recommended Posts

I posted afew days ago about my friend w/ the two different types of NSLC. The first surgery she had right top lobe was removed, now she has to have bottom left lobe removed. Does anyone had two lobes one in each lung gone? How comprised will her breathing be?

I had my upper left lobe removed and then 5 years later had most of the lower left lobe removed. My surgeon told me that we have far more lung capacity than we need. I do still have my entire right lung, but even with most of the left lung gone, my lung function is still 97%. If her lungs were in good shape before the cancer, I don't think she should have any problems. Good luck to her and take care of yourself too.
