Hi everyone, after waiting 5 months for my operation I finally had it just over a week ago. I had a VATS bullaectomy and a pleurectomy and I have found that ever since then the left side of my chest and sometimes my arm is numb also. I wondered if anyone else has experienced this and for how long? My surgeon said its normal but didn't say much else. One of my wounds also bled a little last night and unsure whether this is normal also? I'm getting my stitches out tomorrow so I will mention it to the nurse, but as I'm 21 I seem to panic over little things like that! Hope someone can help x
