Hi, my name is Claire and I have been having problems with my lungs since September. I am a 21 years old, have never smoked and have been rather healthy until around three years ago. I started to get unwell in 2012 and doctors ignored this even though I told them countless times I was breathless and tired all of the time. They finally found found something after they heard an unusual sound in my chest in September 2014 and firstly I was sent away with antibiotics as a doctor thought it was a Chest infection. A week later another doctor then sent me to have a chest x-ray and it was found that my lung had collapsed, so after a failed aspiration and a chest drain my lung finally started to re-inflate. I was allowed to go home after a week, with a follow up appointment in the future. Since I was still getting chest pain and feeling breathless and had a bad cough they moved my appointment forward and I had a CT Scan and this showed on the top of my left lung, I have several Bullae which are to be removed and I also have a shadow on the bottom of my lung which has to be investigated. They don't seem to want to tell my anything which is very concerning to me as I have no clue what it could be. I still get all of the symptoms above and waiting for this operation is extremely stressful, especially as I have been waiting since late November and still do not have a date for the operation (which was supposed to be February) as my hospital is cancelling operations left right and centre. I just wondered if there was anyone that has been through anything similar and could tell me anymore? I'm literally clueless and would appreciate hearing other peoples stories!
