Wooh, another thing to add to my life death experiences, for 2007.
A pneumothorax is collection of air or gas in the space surrounding the lungs.
And some how that air got popped, around 7:00pm last night collapsing a small part of my left lung, at first we thought it was a reaction to some sulfur from fireworks, well. I called my mom Paramedics show up, and stuff, my mom takes me to the hospital. They gave me some extra strength Meds and I had 3 x rays taken to see if it progressed. It didn't it was the same all 3 times, so it wasnt getting worse. But they had a 3-4 inch 18gage needle i think, sitting next to my bed in case it got worse and they HAD to get the air out right then and their.
Well i got out around 2 hours ago, i feel much better, but I wont ever be able to Scuba dive, something I've always wanted to do... :'( I cant Sky dive, which is also something I wanted to do when I graduated. :-x , and many physical sports (haha like im doing that any time soon) and I cant play sax for a couple weeks. Have to quit smoking too, at first I thought it was happening because of my smoking, but i had only been smoking for like 6 months, but, I had tried to quit for about a week and a half and had one that morning.
