Brief Answer:
Possibility of atelectesis is more likely.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
I have gone through the report you have mentioned.
Possibility of atelectesis (partial collapse of part of lung) is more likely in your case.
It is mostly due to accumulation of secretions.
Chest x ray image would be of great help to guide you further.
Please let me know
1. Do you have fever?
2. Do you have chest congestion or mucus expectoration?
Please reply me answers of above asked questions, so that I can guide you better. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
