My husband had a chest X-ray today because they saw a shadow on the lung last week. When he was explaining it to us tonight he said that the lower part of the lungs have collapsed. I’ve never heard that happening except on tv and it always meant a balloon and surgery. So I’m not understanding what this means exactly. He’s our family dr fresh out of med school so I’m not sure if it’s just because larrys his first ALS patient or if it’s me. What exactly does this mean? Am I reading to much into that phrase or not enough?
