Thanks for the info, but I'm past the inhalers, I'm on oxygen 24/7. I'm having a lot of unbearable pain under my ribs in the back and sides,so the doc did a ct scan,that's how I learned about the hyperarated lungs. I had never heard of this before
No, the report said hyperaerated lungs, I've never heard of hyperinflation either. I've been seeing just regular doctor, but I will be seeing a pulmolnogest next week, but I was told I had emphysema after a broncoscope 10 years ago. I've also had open heart surgery in 97. I kind of thought the pain might have come from the ribs being spred back then and this is just an after result. Yes I've had pain for a long time, but it has never been unbearable before.
