Yes surgery. My husbands issue is lung... on the outside so it is stuck to the pleura and grows thicker with progression. So it is painful and eventually makes the lung not work... so. Yes we are researching. The pain and STICK-ING NESS makes this a weird issue. I am not intuitively feeling we should do the surgery... However ... I am looking for solutions. If there are any suggestions... I am all ears. this is a difficult one.
