Atelectasis

Has anyone else got wide spread asthmatic Atelectasis? Every time I have an x-ray I am told my lungs look pale and wet and that I have scattered Atelectasis but not to worry about it???!!!

I know it means that lots of small airways have collapsed because they are plugged with mucus and that is probably why I have a chest infection every 6 weeks or so. I asked if that is why I am always breathless only to be told no it will not have an effect on my breathing. I don't understand how it will not effect things.

Anyone know any thing about it? x
