After reading all this great information on this site about Lung valves and the new coil lung inserts . Well I saw my consultant three months ago , I asked him if I was suitable for these ( having a FEV>18 with serve emphysema ). He arranged for me to have a High Resolution scan. Which I had on Christmas eve. Well I saw the consultant yesterday ( I was in high hopes) but unfortunately he said my lung were too bad , not enough lung tissue to work with. So I am has you can imagine very downhearted. Where do I go from here?
