Lung surgery?

I had colon surgery 9/06, liver resection 2/07 and now they have found by CT 2 small, 3mm lung mets (assumed to be cancer but not able to biosopy or do PET scan on) They will do 2nd CT and PET in Dec and then possible surgery. I met with the thoracic surgeon Nov 1 for consulation and want all the info I can get.

1) How difficult is lung surgery recovery?
2) Any success with RFA?
3) How many mets did people have and still get surgery?
4) Is chemo given after lung mets?

Thanks all you have really helped me over the last year.
