I'm a 21 year old male, tall, non smoker, previously fit/sporty untill problem began.
Over the summer my right lung collapsed several times - the first after playing rugby, the 2nd/3rd spontaniously at work. After the 3rd collapse I had a lung pleurectomy which my doctor in hospital told me would make it impossible for my lung to collapse again.
Around 5 weeks after my surgery, having rested solidly as advised, my right lung collapsed again whilst taking a short walk.
As my doctor is on holiday I am now worried about what can be done as I've had the surgery and it didnt work. I'm also worried about if or when my lung is going to collapse again.
Obviously being 1 in 20 to get multiple pneumothorax's and then 1-4 in 100 for the surgery to not work is worrying. Also, having your lung collapse isn't and enjoyable experience especially when you struggle to get to hospital.
What else can be done to stop my lung collapsing?
