Help please, re Lobectomy..

Hi All

I had a Lobectomy, upper right lobe on Friday 8th May.
Great news is, it turns out to be TB and not cancer, although we were all prepared for that news...Doc too.

I just wondered, is it normal to feel soooo sore and tired 2 weeks after this op? It was done with VATS, but I am seriously taking strain and feel so feeble. The pain gets really bad so I am awake every 2 hours.
I did have the drain in until this Friday, which was 2 weeks, and they have put me on anti-biotics, so that may have slowed up the healing.
I would appreciate any input at all as I am miserable as sin, and should be celebrating!
