Abstract
This guide is for patients that are being admitted to the Victoria General Hospital for open thoracotomy pulmonary resection surgery for lung cancer treatment. Your surgeon will make a surgical cut between two ribs. The cut will go from the front of your chest wall to your back, passing just underneath your armpit. These ribs will be separated. Your lung on this side will be deflated so that air will not move in and out of it during surgery. Your surgeon may not know how much of your lung needs to be removed until your chest is open and the lung can be seen. After surgery, one or more drainage tubes (chest tubes) will be placed into your chest area to drain out fluids that build up. After the surgery on your lung, your surgeon will close the ribs, muscles, and skin with stitches. The health care team has put together a guide called a Clinical Pathway so you will know what will happen to you before surgery and on a day-to-day basis after surgery. A Clinical Pathway is a general guideline about your care.
