My husband is scheduled for a lower right lobectomy for nsclc on Nov. 18th. He has emphysema and still smokes. Can anyone tell me what to expect after surgery? Has anyone had complications due to the emphysema and/or smoking? How long was your hospital stay? We have a home-based business. How much recovery time is needed if my husband just has to handle phone calls?
Thanks for the info. The surgeon has explained some things but there's nothing like getting the information from people who have "been there."
