Re: SCARS ON LUNGS
I hope you can find some answers. I don't know if you can look at your CT report. They have so much information that it can be scary.
Mine reported many things, but one of the items on the report was linear scarring or atelectasis in the right lower lobe, adjacent minimal consolidation, which probably relects atelectasis and scattered dependent subpleural opacities in the lowers lobes that are consistent with atelectasis. I guess the radiologists may have difficulty determining atelectasis from scar tissue.
Considering that, yours may be the same. I looked up the causes of atelectasis and one of them is anesthesia. Having recent surgery may or may not be the cause, but it is something to consider.
A pulmonologist is familiar with these issues for sure. Hopefully all is well. Keep us posted.
