Hello all,

I had the Upper Right Lobectomy in Sept 2009. Since then I've had bronchitis twice. I've had bronchitis in the past but it only happened once every few years. For those of you who have had a lobectomy, do you find you are more susceptible to bronchitis?

Another question--do you have a harder time now with cold air? I live in a very warm climate but I recently traveled to a cold climate which might have set off my second round with bronchitis.

In case it matters I am not in treatment for cancer. The mass in my lung turned out to be a nasty infection.

Thank you in advance for your help.
