My husband was diagnosed with stage 2b non small cell lung cancer, had 2 lobes remov ed from right lung almost 2 months ago. Chemotherapy starts?

Depends. The need for further therapy is dictated by many factors. And it may be that your doctors feel no further chemotherapy is needed now. So it is best to ask the doctors what the next plan or stage of action is and go from there.

Why does my husband have to have chemotherapy for nonsmall cell lung cancer in which he had two right lobes removed 2 months ago?

Adjunct ChemoRx. I'm glad your husbands tumor was operable. The decision about giving adjunct chemotherapy is based on how big the tumor is, what subtype (there are dozens just for lung), and how far it was found to have gotten at surgery. Some protocols give improved survival (time, overall) if some chemotherapy is given. He does not HAVE to take it but needs to be given the facts himself. Best wishes. Read more...

Depends. Depends on the stage of the cancer-how far it has spread and on the patient's comorbidities-what other diseases are present. The oncologist can give you the best answer. If unhappy with it, get a 2nd opinion. Read more...
Vague question. Cancers are treated according to type and staging. Also consideration is given to the person's general health. I guess you have seen an oncologist who will advise you. There is no such thing as " most effective chemotherapy", your doctor and you will decide as a team which is the best for you. Read more...
Molecular map reqd. We know now that about 50% of non small cell lung cancers have a detectable mutation that has a targeted drug to that mutation. This means that the most effective drugs can be used efficiently and targetted to the specific tumor cell type. Mind you although 50% do not have drugs that are capable of targetting a specific mutation we still do know the mutations. There are molecular tests to use. Read more...
