5 months post lobectomy. Phrenic nerve issue


Recommended Posts

I now have what’s called phrenic nerve palsy. Apparently something happened during surgery to irritate this nerve. I still have a lot of trouble breathing with the slightest exertion. Had a sniff test done and that’s what they found.  My diaphragm has moved up into that space (lower right lobe) too far. I have to wait a year like this to see if it improves! If not, another surgery. Anyone else ever have this?
