In brief: See lung doc
One's pulmonologist can assess pre-op.
Usually one's lung function will be measured with a pulmonary function test, to see if a person can even undergo lung surgery and if so, how much. The important thing is to follow one's doc's advice who knows you best, and to treat the underlying reason for the surgery. There will be decrease in quality. Best wishes and god bless. Tough decision to make.

In brief: Depends
It all depends on your lung function before surgery , if you have normal lungs many people can live a normal life style .
You need pft and quantitave lung scan.
