Because of the observation that already debilitated pts who undergo lung resection become even more debilitated afterwards, the authors conducted a randomized trial of endurance and strength training for 20 wks after major lung resection.  Training significantly improved peak VO2, DLCO, strength, endurance, and muscle mass compared to controls.  Quality of life, both physical and mental, was also improved with the training compared to controls.
