... It's possible that during the pleurodesis that some areas were abraded maybe too thinly where blebs may have been and air is between the lung and chest wall tissues.

I have... (3 replies)

... I have had two CT scans in three weeks. Both showed pneumonia in left lung. My question is how can I have pneumonia without any of the usual symptoms?

... Well, it is Monday morning and I am hoping to hear something today. I'll probably leave soon as I want to stop at a store near the hospital. Then I will call to see if results are ready and, if so, stop in to pick them up. I doubt that i will hear from my doctor until afternoon so I may see the results before the office calls me. I have a cell phone so they will be... (26 replies)
