I am having pain in the front side of my chest. The surgery was done robotics. I think that my nerves are coming back and the nerve meds aren't working. So my question is how long does the pain last?

Thanks for reaching out. Pain after surgery can last different amounts of time - it can vary by person. We always recommend checking in with your doctor/care team if experiencing pain, as they may be able to offer help, and some find a palliative care specialist helpful in managing treatment side effects like pain as well (https://lungcancer.net/living/navigating-palliative-care/).
