Hi everyone, I'm new to the site, have been reading some of the posts to assist me in learning about what to expect for post-lobectomy recovery time. I'm trying to help my 78 year old father who has COPD and was diagnosed with stage 2 lung cancer in the fall of 2017. He had his right lung bottom and middle lobes removed in December 2017, made it home for Christmas but 3 days later was admitted back at hospital with increased shortness of breath and congestion. He has been in the hospital nearly 6 weeks now and is getting depressed as his discharge date has been changed repeatedly. I'd like to give him some hope by sharing how others coped in the first few weeks/months after this surgery.
Thanks to all who reply!
