Post lobectomy intercostal retractions


Recommended Posts


Are post lobectomy intercostal retractions normal? I couldn't say. I spend time searching for the symptom and could find nothing definitive about the frequency of occurrence. I did find this paper on post lobectomy early complications but it is not on point as concerns the frequency of occurrence of intercostal muscle (I assume) retractions complications.

Is your surgeon engaged in dealing with your symptoms?

Stay the course.
