I have been diagnosed with cancer of the lymphnode in my chest. I have had no chemo or radiation treatment. I have been on steroid tablets and have subsequently developed water retention in chest and ankles. My SATS levels are between 88% & 90% without oxygen.
I have had a drain in my chest to drain the fluid but only 500ml was removed. The X-ray afterwards showed little/no differences to the X-ray done beforehand.
Can my Lung be repaired if the cause of the collapse was due to the cancer spreading (this has not been confirmed but I have a feeling this is what caused the Lung to collapse)
Thank you for your time and your help.
