Hello, my husband has to have his middle lung removed. It's not cancer. However there are masses growing causing blocked airways. The doctors are saying it would be 2 weeks of recovery time. I on the other hand do not believe that. They will be opening up the chest so I'm finding it hard to believe he will be feeling great and head back to work in 2 weeks. Especially When the hospital stay is suppose to be a 4 day stay. I need to plan financially if he is out of work for longer than 2 weeks. Any information you can share is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
