I was diagnosed in June of this year with right upper lobe stage 1 cancer. I was extremely lucky to have found it so early. My husband had a heart attack and as a result gave me a heart scan for Christmas. Long story short, CT showed a mass and now it's gone via a lobectomy 3 weeks ago. My question to all who have proceeded me, how long does the pain and shortness of breath last? They want you to breath deep to build up lung capacity but it's hard to do when it hurts. Thanks for listening.
