To test the effect of post operative complications on the health related quality of life (HRQOL) after Video Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS) for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC).
The HRQOL of patients with early stage NSCLC will be assessed at baseline (before surgery) using 3 different reliable and valid HRQOL questionnaire (SF-36, EQ-5D and QLQ30/13), then at regular intervals in the early post-operative period (2,4,8 and 12 weeks) the HRQOL will be assessed using the same questionnaires to determine the difference between patients with low/no post operative complications to those with high grade post-operative complications.
Post operative complications will be assess while the patients in the hospital on a daily basis using the Clavien classification system for surgical complications.

Patients who had VATS lung resection for NSCLC, and have no or low grade (grade 1 and 2) post operative complications based on the Clavien classification system.
Patients who had VATS lung resection for NSCLC, and have no or high grade (grade 3 and 4) post operative complications based on the Clavien classification system.
- Health related Quality of life [ Time Frame: Change in health related quality of life at 2 weeks. Change of Health Related Quality of Life at 4 weeks. Change in Health Related Quality of Life at 8 weeks. Change in Health Related Quality of Life at 12 weeks. ]Health Related Quality of Life will be assessed using the SF-36, EQ-5D and QLQ30/13 questionnaires.
