Bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis
When you have bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis does the lungs continue to collapse as time goes on? My husband has noticeable changes in breathing and has had plication surgery on the diaphragm and lung.

Hey Suzie!

Bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis may be associated with abnormalities in breathing/ respiration with associated collapse of the lungs. The collapse is usually static and non-progressive in most cases.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!
