Hello everyone !
I have a crazy question, but one that I have been wondering for awhile. Before my head and neck dx, and recent lung resect...which was minimal (10-12%) lower lobe removed, I was at 37% lung function. Now I haven't been retested but can tell I tire out so easily with normal activity. I was so active and enjoyed sports so much before the beast hit. My MD doesn't think it's a good idea to swim.....which I will try anyway because I'm stubborn that way. (but will use floatation device) I want to start bowling again....so many things. I know we are suppose to accept our new normal, but has anyone had experience that excersise will worsen our lung function ? They are still very concerned I have ADCC mets, but I'm not having any more removed as there isn't much left to take. Thanks for any advice or experience with this. Katie
