I had a left lower lobectomy aged 18 in 1975. I think that equates to half of the lung (but only a third on the right). My peak flow, however, is about half what it should be for a man aged nearly 60 (I can manage 350 on a good day) but at other times it's pretty poor (this morning it was 250).
Is there any rule of thumb for post operative peak flow? My doctor doesn't appear to know and just says 'keep an eye on it'.
