Lung problem
Sep 2, 2016
6 months ago I was diagnosed with pneumonia in right lung.
I was on antibiotics on and off for 5 months; The antiobiotics did not work; my infection was not responsive to anti biotics.
I had a CT scan,Pet Scan, BronchosThey found no cancer, however, they found unidentified infection.
Last month I had the VATS procedure to remove the right middle lobe, however the type of infection was never identified despite biopsy of the lung and culture of the fluid.
Does anyone know what kind of infection this may have been.
Additionally, my surgeon okayed me back to work in 2 weeks....I deliver auto parts, somtimes heavy, and drive 10 hours a day.
I continue to have pain all the time near incision sites,around the ribs, and extending to my back by upper incision near armpit.
Any insight or advice on when this pain might end or what is causing it.
Thank you
