Does anyone on here have experience with severe ARDS after pneumonia and having damaged lungs as a result? My mother is still on a ventilator - it’s been two and a half months. She spent 53 days on ECMO to buy her time to allow her lungs to heal. They’ve said that the lungs are scarred and they don’t know how well they will function. They’re just trying to slowly wean the ventilator - problem is that she’s so weak from being in bed for so long so they basically have to retrain her how to breathe.
Just curious to hear from anyone if they have experienced lung damage and what your life is like now?
