Greetings COPDers. Have a question. Just completed a 4-week hospital sojourn having succeeded in popping a hole in my left lung and causing complete deflation. Drain inserted (ouch bloody ouch!!). Rejected for surgery by St George's - nonetheless, think the Atkinson Morley wing and staff deserve Oscars all round. So waited for hole to close naturally and returned to RSCH Guildford. Anybody else experienced a hole in lung?
