Hi Everyone, I had surgery on March 17th to remove large cancer tumour from middle lobe of right lung they also had to take most of the bottom lobe as well. I had a pretty rough time for a while morphine didn't work on me so ended up having morphine substitute, ketamine, and four other drugs to help with pain.I stayed in high dependency for 5 days the icu then back to the ward where I started to slowly recover. also had a mini trach in my throat to help me cough, and 2 pints of blood because of anaemia Six weeks on i feel so much better the pain has really lessened. I saw the surgeon on Fri. May 1st, 2015
He said the tumour was quite big and it was all cancer what he got out. I need ct scan next month then I will be referred to an Oncologist. I thought I was dying in there everyone else seemed to be much better than I was BUT everyone recovers at a different pace.. I t took me a while but I got there in the end.
