Hey folks for those of you whom have had VATS or pleuraldesis and all of that how many of you have had that fail and another collapse happen? After the surgery I had the phantom pains for awhile like I was having a collapse but those have gone away and things good for years now. However the past week or so I get sharp stabbing pains feels like the lung is trying to tear itself loose from the chest wall. When the sharp pain of that is not there the area the pain was at has this dull ache like I took a few punches to he area. Doc ordered xrays but I will tell ya I can't go thru that surgery again the recovery nearly cost me my job and was a nightmare only thing helped me in recovery was toradol suppose to only take for 5 days due to its potential to damage kidney or something but was on for 10 days to be comfortable.
So trying to get a consensus on tose of u it has failed for.
