Lung & Respiratory Disorders / COPD Board Index

I too have paralyzed right lung diaphram. Cause for it unknown. Worked OK in December 2006 but I caught something called CDiff in the hospital and after I recovered from that intentinal desease, I developed shortness of breath. Last Friday the Doctor confirmed that my right lung diaphram was not operating. I see the Doctor again on Tuesday to see if there is anthing that can be done. He implied that there wasn't. So I'm a two cylinder engine with only one cylinder firing!
You case seem far more serious and irreversible. I'm able to get by with one lung but I'd like to know the odds for the left lung going bad.
It's hell to get old!(85). Would appreciate any info you dig up. I'll do the same for you.
