What kind of tumor was removed?
How big was tumor?
It was unable to be diagnosed by a needle biopsy, so they want to remove it. not sure on the size. I haven't seen the thoracic surgeon yet.
How big incision is there any surgery site?
I havent had it done yet.
Recovery depends on lot of factor like type of tumor , site and extent of tumor , patients general health etc.
In case of local rib tumor complete recovery can take 2-3 wks.
You need 3-4 days of hospital stay if there is no post operative complication.
If there is complete removal of tumor then wound or incision healing will take 7-10 days.
