So I’m currently enjoying the hospitality of, uh, an hospital since my right lung decided to quit the game and fold saturday night. (Spontaneous primary pneumothorax) I fit the profile lile a glove, apparently - tall, thin, male and [del]dashingly handsome[/del] a smoker.
I didn’t know this was something lungs apparently do, occasionally, just to remind us that Mother Nature may well have given us flowers and sunsets, but also the Australian trap-door spider. Since the literature and material I can access is either curt, vague and repetetive I’d like to hear if some of my fellow Dopers have stories to share!
To clarify, I’m not asking for medical advice, just what happened to folks or folks they know.
