  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to see if different types of surgery for lung cancer have different effects on quality of life and pain. What we learn from this study may help us find new ways to improve the quality of life of lung cancer patients who have surgery.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the postoperative change in QOL and level of pain in patients with clinical stage I NSCLC undergoing VATS anatomic lung resection and for patients with clinical stage I NSCLC undergoing thoracotomy and anatomic lung resection [ Time Frame: conclusion of study ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Compare early postoperative analgesic requirements between the VATS and thoracotomy groups. [ Time Frame: conclusion of study ]

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
1
Determine the impact, in terms of quality of life (QOL), of minimally invasive, video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS)
Behavioral: questionnaires

QOL Measures- The following measures will be administered at Pre-Op, First Post-Op Visit 4, 8, 12 months Post-Op.

Brief Pain Inventory and daily analgesic log- enrollment, patients will fill out the BPI preoperatively, postoperative days 2 to 4, initial, 4-month, 8-month and 12-month postoperative visits.

2
Determine the impact, in terms of quality of life (QOL), in traditional thoracotomy and anatomic lung resection in early stage lung cancer.
Behavioral: questionnaires

QOL Measures- The following measures will be administered at Pre-Op, First Post-Op Visit 4, 8, 12 months Post-Op.

Brief Pain Inventory and daily analgesic log- enrollment, patients will fill out the BPI preoperatively, postoperative days 2 to 4, initial, 4-month, 8-month and 12-month postoperative visits.
