Hello, I'm a 63yo Male who just had quadruple bypass surgery (9/1). After 12 weeks recovery, I have been diagnosed with right diaphram paralysis.
A flouroscope was taken to confirm. Shortness of breath with daily activities is very disconcerting. What treatment,if any, should be
undertaken? How long will this nerve trauma last?
Does it require new nerve growth and if so, how long does that take. Having survived the surgery in 99% great shape, I would like to get back intpo my normal activities. My pulmonary specialist thinks it may take months, and hasn't
embarked on any treatment. Is this normal?
