A friend of mine (living in Spain) has been suffering for quite sometime with a hole in the lung. Recently he had his drain removed as the doctors said it couldn't be left in for excessively long periods.

The hole has not shown any signs of getting better and I am posting in this forum to see if anyone has had similar problems and possible treatments that might work? as he is in considerable discomfort obviously.

Thanks in advance-

regards Tony
