@grandmar– Good morning Ronnie. Welcome back to Connect. It's been about a year since you last posted. I know that this past year has been pretty rough for a lot of people because of COVID-19. And a lot of lung operations and treatments were delayed. I hope that you and your family fared well throughout it.
Lobectomies change the geographical structures of the chest cavity. And on top of that, there are chest tubes that are needed to drain old blood and fluids from the chest cavity. I had a lot of painful cramping on my right side after my first lobectomy and wound up re-breaking a rib. Since it's only two weeks since your operation I would give it more time. Your chest has to get used to its new structure. It takes a while to heal from chest surgery.
Are you up and around? Otherwise, feeling pretty good? What kind of cancer was found?
