Paralyzed Diaphragm
24 months ago, I had surgery to correct Pectus Excavatum.  I had a double nuss surgery.  During this surgery they paralyzed my diaphragm on the right side.  As a result, or in addition, I developed a significant pleural effusion on the right side.  As I mentioned, it has been over 2 years and I STILL have diminished breath sounds in the right lung and a pleural effusion.  I get winded MORE than before the surgery...which was the purpose of the surgery, in part...to increase lung capacity.  I've met dead ends with the doctor I'm currently seeing...is there a way to correct this diaphragm problem?  Can paralysis be undone?  Does anybody have any information they can share?  I greatly appreciate it.
