My Nephew had Valley Fever and needed to have a lobe of his lung removed. He did very well,but it took him a little time to heal. He can do everything that he did before he got sick now. Before his surgery , he was coughing up blood and one of those times, he needed to be rushed to the hospital. He had no other choise other than to have a lobe of his lung removed. You should be just fine after surgery. Good Luck with things.
