Hello people. I'm new here, with a few peculiar health problems one of which involves my right lung. Found after a ct scan that I have an area that has possibly collapsed - a small area - which they say has been there a few years.
Apparently it suggests an infection of some sort and a lavage was proposed but as I have no cough and only some breathlessness after exertion I declined. My lungs weren't the reason for the scan you see. Now due to other symptoms I've accepted I need to go ahead with the lavage to try and find out if it is an infection.
I'd be really grateful for information about what this is like because I'm really ignorant of this procedure. I shall see the consultant again of course and can ask questions then, but hearing from others who've been through it would be such a help.
