happydaydiane Posted October 19, 2003 Share Posted October 19, 2003 any success stories with collapsed lungs. my husband's lower left lobe has not expanded. he had a large amount of fluid removed during his 3 week stay in the hospital. he had 10 radiation treatments to his airway to try to shrink a tumor which is blocking the air from getting to his lung which is preventing it from expanding. the radiation treatment was suppose to be 75% successful and 2 weeks after his last treatment the scan did not show it expanding; however he did mention his breathing seems "looser". the doctor told us a while back that sometimes the patients feel it before it actually shows up on the scan. anyway, any good stories out there about collapsed lungs finally expanding?
