lung wedge resection surgery

Three weeks ago I had VATS surgery to perform a wedge resection of a small lesion in my upper right lobe.  The lesion turned out to me a small adenocarcinoma, and the margins were all clear so my prognosis is great.  I have some residual numbness in my ribs and my right breast which I have read and been told is normal.  My question relates to two things.  I am following up with an oncologist to find out about follow up ideas - schedule for CT scans, etc.  I thought I would ask what others have done for follow up in this situation.  The other question relates to other areas of numbness. My left big toe is totally numb and has been since the surgery.  I will ask the surgeon about this - just wondering if any one else experienced something like this and what could have caused it.

Thanks.
