Hi, I wondered if somebody can answer me this question, yesterday I saw the chest doctor at the hospital.( I had a bad PE in Jan this year and spent 9 days in hospital) he told me that the bottom part of my lung died, this is the question does this mean dead as in dead or can it heal itself and that I have a small amount of scarring in the upper part near to the bit that reaches your heart. Sorry to sound so thick but I thought I understood him at the time but now it all seems mixed up. Thanks to everyone Julia
