I had a thorocotomy in November of 2012,with the lower lobe of my right lung removed. I was in ICU for 12 days. The surgery went well, no complications that I was told of, but, the pain from the surgery has not diminished . I have gone thru all of the required rehabs. Pulmonary,as well as, physical. Also had 2 nerve blocks done , and a thorcentisis. Nothing stops the pain, uncluding every imaginable pain medication. I am pretty active, walking my dog, cleaning the house, doing yard work, ( can't shovel snow or mow the lawn ) but the pain stays. Somedays it is so bad I have terrible difficulty breathing. I would love to know if anyone else has or is experiencing these symptoms, and, what you are doing for relief. Thanks For Listening.
