I had a lobectomy at the end of February as I had a 5.5cm mass in my middle lobe. After being told by the consultant and surgeon that it was unlikely to be cancer, the results came through as stage 2A mucinous adenacarcinoma.
I have recovered well, have some nerve pain but nothing too severe. 3 months on I have developed quite a large lump on my chest wall next to my chest drain scar. Any ideas what this could be? Is it possible to get a build up of fluid 3 months after surgery? There is no sign of infection but the area is tender. I'm waiting for a call from my consultant and I've just had a chest X-ray.
