Lobectomy update



Further to my post last week I have now had the lobectomy as the tumour showed cancer cells. Am in Papworth which is an amazing state of the art heart and lung hospital. They r looking after me very well! Full histology due in a couple of weeks. I believe that this was caught early so am remain g positive!

Wishing you the very best in your recovery,take things steady as some days will be better than others,i imagine you will experience a certain amount of breathlessness but things should gradually improve and your vats procedure will have aided a quicker recovery.Best wishes

Thank you celato x

Great that this tumour was caught early and now removed. All best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Hi Clare, that’s good news . My niece has just had a lobectomy , and I think the whole family is still in shock as they didn’t expect it. But everything I have been able to read shows removing the lobe gives the very best chance for non reoccurrence and good future health. I would be really grateful to hear more about your recovery . I had suggested my niece join this group and find advice and support but don’t think she has had the time to do so. Sorry I am waffling here, but send very best wishes and love your positive approach. Hope you are soon back to good health . X

Hello, yes it's quite a major procedure. I am still in hospital but hoping to go home tomorrow. Like your niece I am now, awaiting full histology which takes a couple of weeks apparently. My recovery is going well so far. I think u r right when u say full lobectomy gives best outcome. Pls feel free to ask any questions and mention to your niece to join this group too as it amazing! Love Clare.

Hi claracola. Wishing you a speedy recovery and a positive outcome. Good to know you are getting the best of treatment. Take care. Carol xxx

Thank you very much ninelives x

Great that all went well. Wishing you full recovery . Suggest you request an Aerobika or other breathing exerciser. I used mine ( and still do years later ) when watching tv, on my I pad or just whenever. It will absolutely be very beneficial to both regaining breathing capability , and also helping to slightly enlarge the size/capacity of your remains lobe(s). Again, All Best Wishes, judg69

claracola in reply to judg69

Hello judge69 I will look up about aerobika. Thank you for your reply x

I hope that the surgery has done the trick and that you will soon be feeling better. Glad that you are in such good hands and that it seens to have been caught early. Best wishes, Alberta xxx
