    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?
