Hi Colleen,

Thanks for your reply. I have NSCLC, stage 1A. I was fortunate it was caught before I had any symptoms.

I know it has only been 5 weeks, just seems I was really doing well in my recovery the first few weeks and now, very little difference in the pain level the last couple weeks.

Always great to hear others experiences.

Thank you,
Patti

I have been diagnosed with stage 1 lung cancer in left lower lobe, following results of a PET scan. I am to be scheduled for a lobectomy to the left lower lobe. I am wondering how long the surgery took, and how many days in the hospital. Also, I have been physically active most of my life and am also concerned that I may lose significant physical capacity. I appreciate any info from others who have undergone this surgery. It is considered curative, and I feel fortunate it was caught early.
