Hi,
How are you? After lung resection or lobectomy, hospital stay is usually  6 to 20 days. Deep breathing is encouraged for the first few days after surgery to help prevent pneumonia. Activity is limited and it may take a few weeks before going back to normal activities. The length of recovery depends on a variety of factors such as  age, medical history,size and procedure itself. Talk to your doctor about this for proper management. Take care and regards.
