The procedure entails 3 incisions on my ribs which a camera can be placed. They then deflate my lung and put in a drain which will help pull any fluid/air out, then this drain will be attached until the lung is reinflated. I meant to mention I keep getting collapsed lungs and at the age of 27 this should not happen, however they think it's a problem with blebs. (Don't know if this is what they are called) so they may have to cut them out. Has anyone had this experience before that could help me prepare better as my op was meant to be last week but I could not go through with it. I know that I was selfish and unreasonable but I am so scared that I cannot sleep because of this or even eat. I thank all who replys and can help me.
