    Procedure or Surgery (Lobectomy): Afterthe surgery to remove the cancer I ended up bleeding..so back to surgery I went...My recovery was tuff because I broke 3 ribs shortly after surgery..my side effects were and are a struggle..especially because I have depression/anxiety and PTSD...

    Side Effects (Bone fracture or break): Nausea of course..fatigue..sore in mouth..one runny nostril with a little blood when I blew my nose..itchy blisters on my chest..hair thinning fast..If anyone has a mood disorder or anxiety/depression, for me it really elevated my depression..cried almost everyday..BUT I'M ALIVE!!!!

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I agreed that it was easy to do, because the actual IV treatment it was no big deal for me..1st day..horrendous headache, that night, somehow I ate 1/2 bottle of Tums..heartburn intense(suggestion, don't go out to eat after chemo and eat anything SPICY)..day 3-11 the nausea was bad, but finally found reglan, after trying 3 others..I lost 15 lbs, I had a hard time eating and drinking...I don't know how some of you can go to work..I was so sick..found out the nausea was so bad because I was dehydrated..got IV hydrated and I felt 100% better in 24 hours!!
