New to this

hello I have not done any of this discussion post before, so I'm new to this. 3 yes ago I had half my right lung removed. My copd has been getting alot worse lately. Sometimes I feel like my lung is popping out of my ribs. Does anyone else have this problem?


  1. Hi Patti, and welcome - we are pleased that you have found our online community. I thought you might find it helpful to look over this material - it is geared for newcomers, such as yourself: https://copd.net/news/welcome-newcomers. I do hope you find it to be helpful in a practical way.
    Based on the information you shared here with the community, have you been followed by a physician since the procedure which removed part of your right lung?
    Do you also have a physician who works with you on managing the COPD.
    Since you have also shared you are experiencing some discomfort in your lung and, you have said it seems as though the COPD is worsening, you may want to reach out to your physician(s) when you are able to. The doctor(s) can assess your condition and perhaps suggest treatment that may help you to feel better.
    I see one or our community members, , has made a similar suggestion, too.
    What do you think, Patti?

    1. Hopefully you get better soon! I suggest go and have a doctor check you out.
