Update after mums surgery

So my mum underwent a lobectomy and wedge resection 2 weeks ago. She has since suffered a pneumothorax on the right side due to a chest drain not functioning properly and also has an infection but is recovering. She spoke to her surgeon today and was told that the lymph nodes on her right side were showing some activity and so she will need chemo after all. I feel so stressed and upset tonight. She has been through so much.
