    It is natural to be down after surgery. I was out of breath for many months after stage 1A lobectomy. My doctor had me on oxygen as needed for 6 months. I used it during the day for the first 4 months. I no longer need it. Your mother in law will get her breath back in the future and should try to walk as much as possible now, even just small steps.
    It is hard to accept the diagnosis of cancer but if you have to get lung cancer, stage 1A is the best place. She has more chance of surviving this cruel disease at that stage.
    I am 1.5 years since my initial surgery and am doing well, no recurrent nodules that are swollen. Tell your mother in law to take it one day at a time. If she wants to email me she can and I would be glad to email back.

      Thank you for responding. I will pass this information along to her. I try to tell her that her chances are good, but she not hearing it right now. She doesn't have oxygen. She's very out of breath just talking or doing daily chores. Try to tell her to do her breathing exercises but I don't think she is. I'm glad to hear that your doing well.
