Did you lose your lung capacity when they collapsed it or did they return to their original size?90 seconds.
Still recovering from surgery (they collapsed my lungs). Doctors remark about my huge lungs. I used to swim underwater across and back in our 40' pool. I keep in shape by playing clarinet.
For a time after surgery, there was fluid in my lungs that took a while to get out. I think the capacity is reduced, but returning to normal over time. However, it's important that I do breathing exercises, like using a spirometer, or playing clarinet, or vigorous walking etc. That's probably helping to get my lungs fully re-inflated.Did you lose your lung capacity when they collapsed it or did they return to their original size?
To add to that. When I moved to Lynnfield in 1983, my house was less than a mile from the school .... as the crow flies. There was, however, a pond between me and the school. The school said, "You live within a mile of the school, you have to walk" -- that was probably a mile and a half. So all winter long, I was expected to walk around the pond to the nearest road that would lead to the school. My mother went to the school and pounded on the desk until they allowed me to ride on the bus. But it was on the condition I walk to the nearest existing bus stop -- a new one would not be created (despite the fact that the bus literally drove right past my driveway on the way to the school). So I used to walk about 10 minutes (or run 5 minutes) to the nearest bus stop each day. There were about a half dozen kids at that stop, and some walked from almost as far away as I did.
Fast forward to 2019 when my son switched from private school to public school. I looked at the bus routes and oh my lord no wonder taxes are so high. There is a bus stop ON THE ROAD THE SCHOOL IS ON. I'm talking about 4 houses down. My son's friend lives about a 10 minute walk from the school, and usually chooses to walk. There are TWO bus stops on his road, one a few houses down the street (away from the school) and another one a few houses down (toward the school). I couldn't believe it!!
