I have battled lung cancer for two years and have the opportunity to have a portion of my correct lung removed. What are the standard outcomes and right after impacts of such surgery?

I see few complications from this surgery, but it can be pretty painful to recover from. It can be much easier if it is done laparoscopicly, but there are not many surgeons in the county that are trained to do them this way. Please talk to your surgeon and ask them the entire question you have.

What Are The Recovery Rates Of Lung Surgery For Stage Iv Lung Cancer?

I agree with Denisedd.
If you are planning surgery, your surgeon should be carefully explaining the expected benefits verses the risks of the operation.
Your surgeon and medical oncologist and perhaps the radiation oncologist should be discussing your situation as a group to provide all points of view regarding surgery. If you have correctly listed your lung carcinoma as stage IV - widespread disease - the doctors must consider where else you have disease and how much benefit you might gain from a partial lung resection.

Your doctors know the details of your case which you do not provide for us.
What was the initial stage?
What was the histopathology - the type of lung cancer?
Where has it spread?
What treatments have already been tried?
What is the tumor volume - roughly estimated?
We should not be offering advice at this distance with so little information.

We don't even know your age?
