Thanks Barb, I hope you are doing better and you get well soon. I am still very weak at times (from the chemo) and my ribs are still sore where they took the lymph nodes. Other than that I am grateful I am still here and able to walk without feeling like passing out. I will seek you out on FB, thanks for the invite.
Manny

Breathing exercises are essential. I am 1 year post op from a lobectomy and am getting better and better. I still use the breathing exercise device from the hospital in the mornings. I take long walks and am swimming. I am able to go underwater the length of the pool. Of course, I am on remission since February and have completed chemo. I found it takes a long time to get over the chemo symptoms. Tiredness occurs heavily every three or four days. I keep on taking my folic acid and vitamins.**********
I just now saw your reply to my first post after I typed the above. Hate to see you go but thanks for your invite.

Hey Mannyinflorida
First, glad to hear that you are able to breath and exercise. I was there until it came back in November. Now I am lucky to walk up the stairs and not huff and puff.

I started this page a few years ago and it just never took off. You have been the first person to post anything in a long, long time. I think I am just going to let it go. If you or anyone wants to take it over, you are more then welcome. If anyone would like to keep in touch, I am on facebook, Barb Skilton Fougeron, friend me.

Blessings,
Barb

Almost a year after lung surgery I am now getting my breathing right. By that I mean, I also suffer from Asthma and with breathing exercises and medicines, i am able to maintain enough oxygen to exercise and not run out of breath. I am a cancer survivor X2 and I am eating healthier now. This SP program works for me.

I am so thankful that I haven't had to deal with lung cancer myself, but I have had to watch and support a great friend who went through it!

I'm just curious what breathing exercises anyone who has had lung cancer have been told to do? Do they help? Any tips or tricks? I have some general breathing exercises, but I don't know how well they apply to someone who may have had part of a lung removed!

Attitude is everything!
