Tension Pneumonthorax

3 weeks ago I went to have a bronchoscopy and they took a sample off my right lung and air brushed my left and my left lung collapsed I have been told it might be because the lung had a lot of emphysema so im waiting to have a scan on my lungs. It was very freighting as I couldn't breathe and they had to get the Crash team working on me. Has this happened to anyone else on this site if so how did your lung scan go.
