[QUOTE=Phoenix1;3169704]Dear all,

I had a chest x-ray for medical clearance and was told that I have minimal focal discoid atelectasis in the lower left lobe.

Had a lumbar fusion last year(August) and take Percocet(7.5/325).

Come to think of it, when I attempt to breathe deeply, there is a pain on the left side.

Anyone had this happen before?

Hi I recently found out I did it calapsed lung here is my report.
I have had a serious MVAccident in 1983. Rutured diaphram Punched lung. Spleen removed. Exposed to cement dust when I was 17yo.

CT SCAN oF THE CHEST AND UPPER ABDOMEN
Clinical History. Non-specific 1 cm nodule left lung base medial basal segment.
Findings: the 1 cm rounded nodule is noted at the left lung base medial basal segment.

There is a tiny nodule peripherally in the inferior aspect in the right middle lobe approximately 4mm diameter.
There is a 7mm nodule at the left lung base posterolaterally. No other nodules are seen in the Lungs. Normal pulmonary vascularity. There is some minor atelectasěs at the right middle Lobe Lateral basal segment. There is no evidence of mediastinal or hilar lym phadenopathy. The trachea and proximal Main bronchi outline normally. Normal axillae. Normal bone texture. No pleural abnormality seen.

CONCLUSlON.
There are two nodules in the Left lower lobe 1 cm and O.7cm and there is a 4m m nodule in the inferior right middle lobe. The presence of multiple nodules raises the possibility of early metastatic lung disease however, these could represent granulomata. A PET scan might be considered especially if there is no other known primary source for lung Lesion in the body.

Alternatively a repeat CT scan in three months' time to check progress could be performed.
