      how are you afterwards? I've been experiencing weird undescribable feelings in my chest sometimes and even stomach uncomfortability

    It has been good for me up into 2018 when I caught pneumonia and developed a cough that just won't go away

    Ahh that's unfortunate, i get a little cough sometimes , almost like clearing my throat. Did you experience the other things like how I described?

    Did it take 4 months and you still felt odd sometimes?

  • Lonchell

    It comes and goes

      yeah honestly. I just am hoping after the pleurodesis it eventually won't be bothersome. I had my procedure in early May 2022, so it's been almost 4 months

    Ahh okay , did you check for it? Sometimes this causes lung issues like pneumonia and such, i have it, but not bad enough to not protect my lungs

    Good morning Wes, Ok, I will mention it to my paleontologist. Do I have to take a test like the (PFT) pulmonary function test
