Kitty with thymoma

In Cats

My 15-year old cat has been diagnosed with a thymoma, a non-malignant tumor of the thymus for which the suggested treatment is highly invasive surgery (opening up of the sternum and ribcage to remove the tumor, which is pressing against the lungs). I am trying to find someone whose senior cat has had this surgery. It seems to me that the recovery and the many possible complications may cause more pain and suffering than palliative care, but I don't know anyone who has had a personal experience with the procedure and its aftermath.
