Collapsed lung

Hi everyone, I have pulmonary Tb with a collapsed lung, and I'm worried that it may of trapped live bacteria in there. What are your thoughts?

Hi hottchoc, that sounds pretty unpleasant. Poor you. The good news is that the TB treatment will work even with the collapsed lung. Hopefully the medics will be able to reinflate your lung soon too.

Best wishes,

Helen
