Well, mine are all residues from lung operations. Does that count?
Duuuuuude, you stole MY story :( was your collapse spontaneous? And do you remember the collapse %?
The first one was, but the others were triggered by some stupidly small movements. And yeah I remember. The first time was especially bizarre. I realized I was having trouble breathing, after a few days I decided something was wrong, and that night they put a catheter through my chest. How was yours, if I may ask?
My first was spontaneous, the second was just the first one recollapsing through the same hole. My first time collapsed slowly. I had about 6 months of going to the doctor trying to figure out what was wrong. I got a chest x-ray about 1 week in, but it came back negative because it was still a small collapse. Then about 5 months later it had gotten to I believe 65% collapsed. The second one was the bizarre one for me. I woke up one morning and it just didn't feel right. Went in to the hospital later and said "I'm having a little bit of chest pain, I had a collapsed lung about 2 months ago, and this feels very similar and I want to get it checked out." Nurses actually laughed at me and said there was no way I had a lung collapse. Got an x-ray, then the doctor came in and told me that I had a 92% collapse. I looked surprised, then the doctor said he was surprised ,too, as "people with that big a collapse shouldn't walk in saying they "a little bit of pain", in fact, they shouldn't walk in at all"
Of course! Do you feel comfortable sharing why you needed those operations?
Long story short, collapsing. At least I now have to stay away from smoking. So the glass is more than half-full.
