What is Trapped lung syndrome and what is the prognosis if a lung scraping is done.
A friend of mine is about to undergo a lung scraping. Her lungs have been filling with fluid for some time and she has had to be hospitalized a number of times for it. She is a diabetic which I am sure complicates some things. However she is very afraid and since neither of us have heard of the procedure before nor about Trapped lung syndrome we would like some education about what is cause, how it is treated, what kind of pain level and what is prognosis when procedure is done
