I have suffered so many pneumothorax, it started since I was 14 years old. Now I am 25 and still suffering from it. I had more than 15 surgeries. From wrong chest tubes to bled stapling that causes a pneumothorax. Both my lungs left than right kept on clapping . And all the hospital did just placed a chest tube and I was hospitalized for a weak or sometimes to weaks . I have just gotten home from surgery when I laid down and my lung claps again. Life has been really hard for me. But when I turned 19 children’s hospital couldn’t see me nomore so I got transferred to Stanford. They did a surgery that was supposed to be done along time ago and that didn’t happen. They cut the bad piece of my lung and then they glued it to my chest wall. They did that surgery to both sides. But they said that since my lung claps already so many times and because of all the scar tissue that they don’t know if this surgery is going to work on me. And it didn’t just last month my lung claps again. And now both of my sides are numb and I can’t feel them it really hurts . You guys know if u guys had a chest tube. But I have a daughter and she’s the one that’s making me strong. My surgeon said that there’s a chance now that my other side is going to claps. I’ll stop here ????
