Only joined the forum two days ago and this is my first post, hope someone is interested enough to reply.
Two months ago had a pneumothorax of the left lung. The lung didn't re-inflate with a drain tube in place for over a week and a CT scan showed both lungs to be be damaged by emphysema, hence the lung not re-inflating. After being transferred to University Hospital of North Staffs I was operated on and had about 25 or 30% of my left lung removed, that was six weeks ago. Is there anyone else who has had a similar history to myself on any of the forums who would be willing to converse with me as to what to expect after such surgery.
