Hugs to you too! I know this is not an easy time for you, there is nothing easy about any of this. Just know, that there are so many great people in here who has been a tremendous support.
Do you know if you are having VATS? That's what mine was and recovery time is about 2-4 weeks before I can go back to work. However, it all depends on what kind of work you do. You can usually drive after 1 week as long as you are of the pain medication. I was able to make/cook meals right away after getting home from hospital, it took a lot of effort though. I recommend having some easy meals ready in the freezer ahead of time. Make some big batches of soup and freeze if you can. Best of wishes for a speedy recovery ❤️

Thank you, you eased my mind. Yes it is going to be a Vats surgery. What has concerned me are some comments I've read how some have seemed to have had such trouble with prolonged nerved pain after their surgery. I'm assuming that is pain in the chest/rib area. Is this so even with Vats surgery that you know of?
Thank you,
Joanie
