One week checkup with the surgeib


Recommended Posts

I came home a little less than a week ago and had my first checkup with the surgeon. 

I have a leak in one of the lung lobes I have left. (RUL was removed.)

He wants to watch it for another week to see if it heals.

What if it doesn't heal? Does anyone have any experience with that?

Oh yes I unfortunately have lots of experience. A leaky lobe is not as bad as a leaky empty chest. My leak took 2 surgeries and 3 stent procedures to resolve. 

I’m hoping after a week, you’ll be fine. 

Stay the course.
