Hello I had the lobectomy in June. They removed the right hand side, lower lobe. I had a 7 day stay in hospital, and continued on strong pain killers for about 2 weeks afterwards. I found I spent most days at home for the first few weeks living my in pj's and watching tv, or sleeping (side effect of the pain killers). After a few weeks I started feeling normal again. It felt like I had popcorn in my chest, it was the lung trying to expand, it was a weird sensation. i start my chemo (for precaution) tomorrow. I am having 4 cycles of it. My lung cancer was stage 2, nodule in the lung, and an infected lymph node. Hopefully it will never return, but the fear is still there. Hope everything goes well for you.
