Hi, can I have some advice?
I had to get a lump removed from my right lung c ause I had surgery (nephrectomy) for kidney cancer in September. First of all, the chest tube was agony.
I am out of the hospital now. I also have primary lung cancer.
The lump was very small, as I understand, I have to go back to get the right lower lobe removed.
I have to have the chest tube in again. Does anyone have any advice for me?
The narcotics made me damn near psychotic and I had a really hard time coping in the hospital. The medical staff thought I was goofy anyway.
The biggest problem I had was the chest tube. I couldn't sleep from it. Damn it, I didn't sleep for six days.
Any insight, suggestions? Please help.
