Hi everyone my name is Eram. I have had bronchectiesis for 20 yrs. I finally got so fed up being sick and constantly being on meds and steriods that I decided to get a lung lobectomy as recommended by my doctor. So on July 11th, 2017 I did a lower left lobe lobeactomy. The surgeon informed that my entire lower lobe had collapsed so getting rid of it would eliminate the damage portion and finish bronchiectisis. I wanted to know if any body else has got a lobectomy done to eliminate this horrible disease and how long did it take him or her fully recover. Doctor had told me that recovery is 6wks but honestly I am tired all the time still and have nerve pain where my incisions were. Also the center of my chest still hurt. Does anyone know when this nerve pain and chest pain will go away? I will really appreciate it if some can shed some light regarding this matter.
