Marcia Carol Posted April 25 Share Posted April 25 I had my right lower lobe removed 15 months ago. For 6 months after I was not good. I had fluid removed from the lung 3 times. I had robotic surgery, and they got the cancer. I was stage one, non small cell lung cancer. Recovery the surgeon told me could take a couple of weeks or months. My breathing and getting out of breath happens often, even now, 15 months after surgery. I feel pressure always on my right side, and feel like an air bubble moves up and down on that side. Very strange feeling, I’m not in pain but I always feel something going on in that area. I have talked with a couple of people who had their upper lobe removed and have had no problems, or side effects after normal healing. I would like to reach out to others who have had their upper lobe removed and find out how their recovery went. I also have a node on my other lung that they are watching. I had breast cancer 20 years ago and was on treatment for a year would appreciate any information and experience you have had with this procedure Marcia Tom Galli 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
