Hi Nittay.

You need to clarify. What is the lung damage? Is it collapsed? Scarred? cavitated?
What is the cause of this damage? Has the cause been treated or is it still active? Is it due to Tuberculosis?

Lung resection has to be carefully planned. What is the situation of the other lung? Is it completely normal or partly damaged? Not all damaged lungs need to be operated. Simple techniques such as postural drainage can help in handling the situation.

Hi, My name is Simon Bongart. One year ago I had a car accident and I have a broken left elbow and shoulder , a spinal nerve damage which affects the mobility in my hands. I have lost my complete mobility in my left arm, left hand. Have also lost my sensibility at both my hands. I think the best place is to go to an Indian hospital for lllt treatment. Do you have a particularly good one where I could go?

my father is suffering copd stage iv, he's been treatment of omnacortil, deriphyllin, spectoran, faraponem with other supporting drugs including nebulization, postural drainage etc; we've known his condition is irreversible, but would like to get his lungs to clear a bit so that he can avoid exacerbation. is there some ayurvedic relief possible or some home treatment to reduce suffering\/

Could this be something very serious? It feels like there is something in my right lung and it s worse at night and better after sleep. This started six months ago when I felt some mucus go into my lung and from then on it felt like something was slithering around in there, sometimes as if it was licking my rib cage and sometimes as if it was tearing at the surface of my lung with hooks. Usually the pain is in my upper front chest but occasionally it feels like whatever is in there went to my back and spine and slithers up and down there. These last months there is a rapid pulsating sensation every few seconds. I went to my regular doctor for a check up four months ago and she listened and found nothing with her stethoscope. I went to a dentist last month and he tried to listen to my lung but found nothing unusual. Since it I can still breathe (albeit with discomfort), I am not scheduled to see a lung specialist because of the cost. I do not have a cough nor a runny nose and I have not noticed any changes in energy levels or weight. However, recently, the discomfort has been becoming increasingly hard to ignore and sometimes the pain is very sharp. But now there is a new pressing sensation on my rib cage, or so it seems, as if something hard is in my lungs. I have tried postural drainage, but I can t cough anything out and it feels only worse. What condition could this be? Pleurisy or pulmonary embolism? Lung cancer? Or just misplaced mucus? Also, what should I do to alleviate the discomfort and possibly are there any home remedies to cure it? Thank you very much for your help.

I am diagnosed as having bronchiectasis after 22 years of haveing a persistent cough , however, every indication points at acid reflux . Anti-biotics do not seem to help and I am now coughing up mostly white frothy phlegm . For the first 20 years I did not cough up anything at all, then after getting several colds at my place of work, due to the air-conditioning, I now cough up phlegm, my throat is congested and at times I find it difficult to breath at night. I have just been discharged form a specialist in bronchiectasis. I do not think anyone knows what I have, it all started after I had a sinus operation.
