My surgery was done in Kelowna, BC, Canada by Dr. Bill Nelems, he is very well respected by all the local medical community and from what I understand is regarded as one of the best thoracic surgeons in North America. I believe he is one of only 2 doctors in all of Canada that do this surgery and the other is on the other side of the country in Toronto, so I am lucky to live right here.
Other than the arm/elbow pain, I do have some ocasional pain between my shoulder blades, what the surgeon refers to as "noise" but for the most part if I am careful about what I am doing it is pretty good. A lot better than I expected. He gave me the go ahead last week to start yoga classes and exercising and physio. Did my first yoga class the other day and that was a reality check - had to really modify poses and take it easy, still a long ways to go, but it felt really good to get out and do it.
