Hi, I'm new to this site.
I had a lobectomy done 8 1/2 yrs ago also a tumor removed from behind my heart. The Dr said if he knew I had the tumor he would not have did the surgery (they thought it was a large artery). He said these types of tumors always come back. They gave me 10% chance of living 2 yrs. Well, I'm still here over 8 yrs later. I still get very winded walking up and incline. I can't walk & talk at the same time, I become very winded if I try.
