Had the VATS surgery in Oct 2011 for removal of right lobe found as an incidental finding after I retired. Feel blessed and no lymph nodes involved. But still have major discomfort in the front rib cage and stomach and breast area every day.causing me to have anxiety and anger. Pain management didn't help [in fact they punctured my lung during the proceedure] and I feel alone every time I hear about 5 year survival rates. Want to find someone who has survived more years than that estimate. I guess we all look for reassurance don't we?
