    There I go again with the spelling issues!!!
    The truth is that I don’t look at my keys when am typing so I usually “FAT finger” my text.

    I apologize to whom ever have to read my typos, but if you can understand what am trying to come across; then it would be easy to overlook my typos..

    Thanks again ..."passing thru."

    Hi,

    This might be of interrest?

    I am a 26 year old man that have had pnemothorax for six times now.

    During a two year period five years ago i experienced spontaneous pnemothorax five times.

    Just a week ago I got hit by this spontanaeos phemothorax again. Quite sad.

    Apart from this I am very healthy. 77 kg / 188 cm. Training a few times a week. Non smoker. Eating quite healthy food etc.

    I would be happy to answer any of your questions if I can. And of course I would be very happy if some of you could give any hint about what I should do to avoid this pnemothorax thing...

    Best Regards,
    The pnemothorax patient

    Thanks for writing.

    Hope this help.

    Pneumothorax, the presence of air in the pleural cavity, results in a partial or complete collapse of the lung. It commonly results from rapture of the subpleural bulla, either as a complication or emphysema or as a spontaneous event in an otherwise healthy young adult, as your self.

    Also it may be a complication of neonatal hyaline membrane disease and require prolonged assisted ventilation.


    I wish I could help you in more detail but honestly I have to have your current history and also I don’t have my M.D, license yet.

    Here visit this web site and it will go in greater detail about spontaneous phemo.

    recurrent pneumothoraxes may require intervention. Additionally, assisted ventilation has been trialed (read: CPAP), but I was unable to locate any definite study results.
