Fluid in lung 5 weeks after lobectomy

Recommended Posts

After my lobectomy I had fluid in the chest cavity that did concern me but after seeing the doctor I learned that it can dissipate on its own after a while and that is what I experienced.  In my case there was no shortness of breath, but rather a gurgling when I would breathe deeply.  How are you doing since the draining of the fluid?
