Glouie Posted February 13, 2019 Share Posted February 13, 2019 Not sure if I qualify here. I was diagnosed( from all scans etc ) with lung cancer in Oct/18. Surgery end of Nov. showed I had a lung infarction and part of my lung was dead. No tumor. It was a pneumonia type infection. Removed with a wedge resection. Since surgery, I have had a tight, painful “band” all the way around my ribs in-line with the incision on my left side. Sometimes it is less but mostly bad. Clothing bothers me. My skin is sensitive. It gives me an internal burning sensation. So hard to explain. I feel like I have a very tight bra on all the time but have literally lived in a night shirt for 77 days. I also have a pain below my left rib like my rib is out of place. My surgeon says that none of this is a result of surgery. I sure didn’t have it before surgery!! any ideas??
