I'm 42, stage 3b, had right lung removed 01/15/03. Looks like 90 percent chance of cure! I am so thankful since I have young kids. Anyone out there with info about the pain after surgery. It's been 10 months and I still have pain that feels like it's muscular or bone related within the chest cavity. The doctors tell me it's nerve endings along the ribs since they had to pry them apart during surgery. I can live with it, no problem, just wondered if anyone else had similar pain. Also, I can't seem to eat as much as I did before surgery. That's probably a good thing since I'm a little overweight (5'11" 210 lbs), but I just wondered if anyone else out there felt the same way? Thanks.
