Hi everyone, I'm 54 and just had lung surgery (right upper lobe was removed) 2 weeks ago and I'm still in a lot of pain. Can anyone tell me when does the pain subsides? I'm hoping soon! I'm alittle better every day, even though some days are not so good...but over all I'm better every day. my doctor doesn't want to give anymore pain meds, what can I take that will actually help the pain. I still feel that the surgery was the best way to go, even if it's a tough recovery. I pray everyone feels better soon!

Get another doctor Mine, one of the best, said"No prizes for pain". Percocet , combination of Tylenol and oxycodon, is great. But just plain Tylenol will help. I am now five weeks out and no need for painkiller, so take hert.
