cause of scar tissue on lung and what can be done?
was recently admitted to respitory/cardiac ward in hospital due to breathing difficulty. chest very tight 14 days in hospital blood pressure flucuating between 90 and 190/  was informed there was scar tissue on the lung. and possibly would have reoccurance of that episode up to four times a year.{later informed pacemaker kept me alive}
never had any lung problem until a car accident, apart from all the fractures to ribs, pelvis and sacrum had lung collapse, {Pneumo thorax.} Pleural effusion, acute respitory failure, pulmonary oedema, acute renal failure.
Had pneumonia twice in hospital.
My question is after all that;   What can be done about scar tissue on lung.
                                           Though it appears the scar tissue resulted from the accident,
                                           what else could have been the cause.?
