I have heard about this, and did in fact mention this to the specialists and he did not seem to agree that loud music could cause a collapse. I'm a 34 year old female who has spent many years right in front of large amps at rock concerts as well as playing in a band of my own several years back so this was a genuine concern for me. I have been to at least 2 concerts since my surgery and made it out just fine.

6 and a half years too late, but I'll be damned if that hasn't just got my wee brain ticking. I so wish I'd happened on this thread when I last frequented this place!
Thank you for this.

Hi guys,

I am a 6ft 8, slim, 21 year old guy who is 7 days post op after pleurectomy and Bullectomy by key hole on the left side. (Apparently Im prime candidate for spontaneous pneumothorax).
They said the op went fine, and the suction drain came out after 3 days in hospital and then I was discharged. I had PCAS whilst I was there instead of epidural to control pain, however I now have a lot of numbness, not even just around where they made the incisions but across my left pectoral and down the abdominal on the left side. The numbness also goes under my left arm pit and underside of upper arm. I was expecting to have at least pins and needles after 7 days but in some areas the skin and muscle underneath still has no feeling. I have a couple areas where the skin is painful because i think numbness might be going, but im not sure because its slow progress. One of the problems is its making my chest feel tighter and breathing harder because the muscles that are numb aren't doing anything to help me breath.

Hi Jimmy,

You should check out some of the posts in the "Post Op" forum related to Numbness after surgery. It is very common with all of us!

My bullectomy and mechanical pleurodesis is now approaching two months since I had it done and I still have that numbess in the arm pit area going down my side, as well as my breast/chest wall. Still too painful to sleep on my stomach! Also pushing on the area, the numb but also painful feeling takes some getting used too. The incision under my arm pit, If I touch it I can't even feel it.

Some nerve damage never heals, and some heals very quickly! You will see some people have posted years later they still have the nerve damage, and some people seem to have healed their nerves up just fine.

Mine has gotten much better, but my doctors have told me (for me), possibly 6 months to a year to regain feeling again. It all differs!

Take care
