Going in today for VATS to evacuate Hemothorax


Recommended Posts

It’s been two weeks since the lobectomy for “invasive mucinous adenocarcinoma” nodule and I’ve been healing up pretty well except can not get much breath or stamina going. The Hemothorax is large and taking up most of what is left of my left lung so I hope this surgery will do the job. Could not sleep last night with the thought that the dreaded chest tube would be back. But I’m ready to take my Hebeclens shower, take off all my jewelry, and become the “patient” once again. I also dread a certain bossy nurse who might be on shift again. I’ve decided that as long as I feed her narcissism, all will be well. Send healing thoughts my way?
