Common Questions and Answers about Pneumonia lung scraping

pneumonia

I had pneumonia a few years back which resulted in a lung scraping operation. After with the large insition on my back and left side it's left it numb and especially nerve damage to the left front below my chest area. Is there anthing that can be done to get relief from the numbness and pain I get in this area.
My surgeon informed me that I needed surgery to remove the dead part of the lung (which turned out to be half of the lung). The surgery involved removing the dead lung and scraping the remaining lung so that when it healed it would heal to the chest wall, as not to have another collapse. Also, the lung expanded to fill the void of the removed lung, except for a very small portion. I can honestly say that I feel better now than I have in years. My Dr.

This fungus can also effect the skin. The fungus is found by looking at some of the sputum or a scraping of effected skin under a microscope. Some people recover without treatment. However relapse is common. Relapse is most likely to happen when there is a deficiency in the immune system. The symptoms may vary with each relapse. An infectious disease specialist with experience in treating fungal infections would be the type of specialist to determine the best treatment.
I would suggest this needs further examination at your vet. Hopefully, they will do an X-ray of her bowel and lung area to see if it is a blockage - though of course, not all obstructions show up on an x-ray. Just because she always seems to be at the vet, that's not a good reason for ignoring these symptoms - it may well be something and nothing, but equally, if it is something like an obstruction or a trachea problem, it will need professional treatment quickly. Let us know how you get on.
Three years ago I saw my Dr about it and she ordered a chest CT scan, which was clear. My concern is that the scan began at lung level and didn't cover my lower throat area, and that's where I think this is coming from. I'm also concerned because since then, it has become much more pronounced...I used to only hear/feel it when I was rotating vigorously (like when doing aerobic workout), but now I hear/feel it whenever I'm simply doing daily activities and happen to turn or twist at the waist.
I guess I thought(I was hoping) that It felt like my lung was included, or like the thump affected or was felt in the left lung. Anyway, this is the third day of palps and I am not really worried because I would guess that if it were really serious I would have already died on the first or second day. Last night I was sure it was my heart because I took my pulse and when the thump occured there was a long pause. I would like to hear about everyone's experience and the duration of the palps.
The first one was on my shoulder and exhibited symptoms within hours of my scraping the tick off (red, hot, bullseye, neck muscle pain) and the second one was on my leg and it got all swollen (about the diameter of a tennis ball, but not raised up very high, but red and hot) and itched for about 3 months. I don't remember if it had a bullseye or not, but went to the Er both times and they said it was textbook both times. I never had any follow up tests or thought to ask for one.
When I rotate my left shoulder blade it sounds as if bones are scraping or something is crunching around. Whatever it is, it causes knots to form underneath and around the shoulder blade. Then, the muscles going up and down my spine get so tight and irritated and feel like they just need to be snapped to release the pressure. The pain/irritation is agonizing.
I was given Morphine and Lactated Ringer solution to get the fever down. My fever broke and I had a urinary tract infection and lung infection. The brochure says 3 days and you are feeling fine. I have not returned to work yet today the 3rd of March. I have watery blood and cramping. I have to take 2 Tylenol four times a day. Going tomorrow to find out when I will feel better. Saw all these posts and was shocked by people's experiences.
I have not had these before. I believed it may have something to do with being on antibiotics for 3+ weeks to fight a lung infection. Fits the stress idea also with body fighting infection. No emotional stress involved in my case. I would be curious to find out if others had been on antibiotics prior to getting the sore spots. Has been very hot & humid here which may or may not be a contributing factor.
