I posted a message almost a month ago with no response as yet. My husband is going to have a wedge/resection in January. They will go in and remove the part of the lung that has the tumor. Has anyone had this surgery, and what can I expect after. He already is mobile with just a walker, lung function is at 26%. The main concern of the Dr.'s is getting him off the breathing machine and the lung leaking air after the surgery. Again, has anyone gone thru this surgery themselves or with a loved one? Thanks for any info.
