hi Tom. listen, my mom could not have the post op chemo they intended for her,either, because she had so many complications - and she's doing great now. hopefully, they can find some options for you. hang in there, and know that we're hear praying and cheering you along!

Hi Tom, glad you have a plan in place. Six years ago I had an upper left lobectomy and not quite two years ago, a wedge resection of the remaining lower left lobe. At present, my lung function is at 98% and I don't have any sob at all. The surgery is not easy but is certainly doable.

Let us know what we can do to help.

I had a lower left lobectomy 5 years ago. The pain medication works wonderful, and within 3 weeks I was off all of it, so don't try to be a hero and go without.

2 months post op I was on vacation at the Jersey shore, a month later flew to San Antonio, in July, for another vacation, and in August walked all around Niagra Falls and Toronto.

My mental state was my worst enemy, but a very good therapist helped that.
