Hello again, its been a while since I have been here. Just wanted to let the great folks here on Lungevity know I am recovering about as normal as possible after the removal of my upper right lobe surgery on May 18th. Hey! exactly 3 months to the day. The pain in the chest and back are pretty much healed, still have the daily zingers, which I understand are normal, but other than that life is good.  For those who might be having some  of the normal worries and concerns facing a lung surgery, I will be honest its not a walk in the park, but it is very much doable. Mine was open surgery and I was blessed with clear margins and no other sign of Mets at all, and with the Lords grace no chemo or radiation needed at this time. My first 3 month doctors visit is coming up the first of September and I CAN NOT tell  a lie I am pretty nervous. But praying that all will go well, and NED will be my new motto. I will keep everyone here in my thoughts and prayers as well, and those who feel as though this might be to much to bare, don't try to take on this trial on your own, ask the Lord for his help. Understanding Grace is the key. We do all we can with adversity, we do our part, and he will make up the difference. Wish you all well, I will let you know the out come of my up coming procedure.

Thanks for sharing the update.  I also had the traditional surgery for an upper left lobectomy.  You are the first person I've heard refer to those pains as zingers; I likened them to a deep spasm.  That said, I had the worst ones at three months out from surgery and then they just faded away.  Please keep us posted on your appointment and we'll hope for a great report then.
