I really don't know how long I have had this ailment. I had part of my right lung removed due to lung cancer. That was 3 years ago. Initially the pain could be attributed to the surgery, but as time went on (like 2 years) and I was still experiencing pain. Got the "it takes time" from my medical providers. Every time I saw my doctors I made sure I told them about it, again only to be told it takes time. Went to my PD a few weeks ago and he now proclaimed it as being coscochondritis. I have now been on 2 rounds of Prednisone (which does seem to help some). I hate how I feel on steroids (useless)! Everything I've read says that it usually is located on the left side, but mine is on the right! With any amount of exertion I am breathless and must sit down to "recover". This is happening even though I am on 2 liters of oxygen 24/7! I have so many questions. I'm not ready to become a hermit ... I've got too much living to do! If you can answer any questions, please reply! Thank you!
