Re: Collapsed lung

[QUOTE=quincy;4841528]I'm assuming your surgery was done via scopes since the thoracotomy such as I had isn't done as much these days.
is that where the scope went in as well? or just the drainage tube?

Hi Quincy,yes i had the scopes and they went in three places on my back close to each other ,i had the first drainage tube under my armpit and after surgery a new tube went in just under that again, but as for the sorness and swelling thats on my chest probabaly where the lung was stuck up to the top of the rib cage and wfere the stapling was done inside the lung,so really im not overly concerened but was just wondering if any one else had similar results.
