The surgeon, an excellent surgeon, recommended a lobectomy on the right lung. Surgery was performed on July 13, 2009. The surgeon found the nodule was cancerous and had grown in an area of the lung damaged by a fungal infection, cryptocaucus. My recuperation period in the hospital was twelve days, the release prolonged due to a pneumothorax (collapsed lung). The treatment for this was the most painful thing I have EVER encountered. It's called Pleurodesis and consists of putting one of any number of chemicals (sclerosing agents or sclerosants) into the pleural space by way of the existing chest tube. The sclerosant irritates the pleurae which results in inflammation (pleuritis) and causes the pleurae to stick together. I don't recommend this to cure boredom but it did work!!
My surgery date was on October 6, 2010. The surgeon did a lobectomy on my right lung, where the two spots were located. My side effects were that I had extreme pain in my side, difficulty breathing, and even pain in my right arm. The pain from the surgery went away after about two weeks, but I still have shortness of breath because I am missing part of my lung- go figure.
