Dear Budgie, thank you for commenting on my post. The scars from my operation look very healthy but are still sore and I have had many blood tests and all seems fine. My biggest problem is the pain in my breast and in my ribs and on looking at a UK site it seems quite common to have a lot of pain after a lobectomy. I agree with you that I need stronger pain killers and I will make an appointment with my GP as you suggested. I guess I’m pretty uptight as everything has happened so suddenly and now I have heart problems also and I have palpitations and breathlessness which doesn’t help. Thanks again Budgie for your reply and I’ll let you know what happens. Best wishes, Rikki.
Hi Rikki ,
Yes, please do keep me posted. I totally understand you being uptight. Its not nice worrying about your heart on top of everything else. I had to wear a Holter monitor last week, as I was having episodes of AF. It is scary.
I hope you get some GOOD pain relief.
