I saw a consultant yesterday for the first time in years and it has been suggested that I would benefit from having one of my lungs washed out. Has anybody ever had this done? If so how was it and did it help you in any way. As I use oxygen 24/7 now I am really scared of having any form of anaesthetic although I am told I will only be sedated and actually awake for the procedure though will not remember any of it afterwards.
Need advice as I only have Emphysema and Bronchiectasis and according to the internet this is only any use to people suffering from Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis and not COPD so really confused
