Will A Lung Grow Back?

I had 2/3 of my right lung amputated 8 years ago due to walking pneumonia which I did not know I had.

My wife now says that she thinks that it should have grown back by now.

I don't think lung sections that have been surgically removed can grow back.

Is what she's saying possible?
