Hello. Thank you for posting.
It is a concern and definitely something your pulmonary doctor will likely (and should) discuss with the surgeon who will perform the procedure.
You will also need an evaluation with an anesthesiologist beforehand. Your doctor(s) will be the ones to discuss this with.
Keep us updated.
