My left lung collapsed and i had surgery to get the hole stapled shut so that my lung would stay inflated. Yes, test of stuff taken out of my lung confirms emphazima. Doc says right lung is worse than the left and odds are it could do the same at anytime. I am on sick leave from work and plan on returning Dec 4th 2017. I am doing really well recovering from surgery, but I am just petrified of what my future holds. I had smoked since I was 13 yrs old and had my last smoke day before I went to ER . That was Oct 7 2017. I am down to being on oxygen only at night and I am working with a lung doc trying different once a day inhalers to see which is best. But I am so scared of what I should expect for my future! Can I live with this? A regular life? Is it possible????
