I had a right middle Lobectomy 4 weeks ago biopsy showed pulmonary adenocarcinoma T2aN0M0 so no adjuvant chimo or radiation, but CT scans every 4 months. I feel really strange being in this nowhere-land and have so many questions like;
how long after vats lobectomy will I feel well? When should I go back to work?
I had great lung capacity before this surgery. What can be expected after? I am 63 yrs
I feel impatient, stressed, confused and alone as I can’t do anything but wait to see what happens next. I feel guilty because I get to be cancer free at least for now but not so many people have a that chance.
I guess this is normal as I have had the worst year in my life. I had 4 stents in my right coronary artery last december, then a nodule resection in the same lobe the 24th of april and now this lobectomy. I was a fully capable happy person before all of this.
Anyway thanks for listening. I hope time will help but it sure is taking it’s time.
Any suggestions are welcomed.
