Re: Second Spontanious Pnemothorax within 1 month..
Hi....I feel your fear regarding the two collapses you've already experienced.
I don't see that your collapses were caused by blebs in the lung...did the doctor not mention that at all?
Did he mention the cause of the fibrotic band or the pleural thickening?
Was the healed lesion a bleb?
The chemical treatment plus tetracycline is to abrade the lung in the hopes that it won't collapse again...kind of like a crazy glue. I would think that because your report didn't state you had blebs, then that was the best course of action since you collapsed more than once.
Regarding your other lung...do you have a report on that?
In truth, there are no guarantees with having just the chemical abrasion...but for you that might fix it forever.
It's all a matter of perspective!
