Hi, back in December a 5.5cm mass was found in my right lung via a CT scan. I've had a PET scan which showed the area concerned as 'hot' but a needle biopsy was inconclusive.
After seeing a surgeon last week I've been told that I have to have a middle lobe lobectomy. I'm so incredibly nervous about the surgery, worried about the pain and how I'm going to cope afterwards. I have 2 children, one who is autistic and I'm now on my own.
I have quite bad asthma so also concerned about how the anaesthetic will effect me.
Can anyone tell me what to expect?
