Isunique Posted January 24, 2009 Share Posted January 24, 2009 Hi all I have a question for those of you living in the frigid North (some areas of Florida as well). I had my upper left lobe removed and find it difficult to breathe outside when it gets colder and the wind chill drops. Will it always be this way or can I strengthen the lungs so it won't be as bad. I always look like Nanook of the North when venturing outside. Also, another silly question, when you get a chest cold when you are minus part of your lung are the colds worse or about the same since you have less to get congested. I have the biggest fear of catching a cold, I have had the sniffles but nothing (knock on wood) has taken hold yet. Take Care and thanks for all of your help and support.
