peacelover Posted April 23, 2007 Share Posted April 23, 2007 Mom's right, cancer-scarred lung finally collapsed totally. Seems weird, but it really is a good thing. The last few months the coughing and SOB has been really bad for her. Confusion and other issues related to hypoxia and now that the bad lung has collapsed she is breathing better and not coughing at all....even has to use her O2 less too! Doc says that now since the lung has no blood flow her body is not having to work double time to reoxegenate the blood. She had 2 small tumors in her good lung last PET and now those are gone too! Now, if we can just get this pesky plural effusion to scram we will be in business! Just wanted to share that sometimes goodness comes in strange packages- Blessings to all- Melissa Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
