I had a lobectomy on Wednesday for lung cancer. It’s taking me a while to recover and they are sending me to Rehab today. It’s been a very worrying time for me and my family. It was Stage 1, caught early so that’s a plus.

Hi @marylou705
Wednesday isn't that long ago. It does take time to recover from such a major surgery as a lobectomy. I'm glad that you will be going to rehab to help with the recovery process.

It would be nice for you to report your progress to the member's of the Lung Cancer group. I'm sure other members there would love to hear how you are doing and give you support along the way. Here's where you posted to the group:

Colleen, I’m not sure how to get on the lung cancer group, not being a whizz kid with computers. I can’t actually figure out how to do this. Thanks.

It takes a while to recover from a lobectomy. The architecture of your chest wall has been disturbed and your body will need to readjust for the different amount of oxygen and carbon dioxide it exchanges. Just recovering from anesthesia is a big deal. Give yourself time to heal, don't think that you have to rush it!

@hopeful33250 I once believed in prayer. I hope everyone is not like what I have known. I also pray to a God that loves.
I am far behind on everything. I know there is a God. God is NOT responsible for the negativity in this world world.
If I could I would obliterate the morning news.

Thank you. It was more of a hassle than I imagined. I am a retired Physio, so expect instant results! Not happening. But, I’m in a good rehab facility. I can be here for 20 days but am hoping for no more than a week. Have already walked and done some stairs. They keep pushing food on me and I’ve had enough! Maybe a good sign that I’m in a whining mode!
