I just got out of the hospital finally after 4 days!
Had a collapsed left lung that was leaking air into my chest cavity and inflating me like a balloon. I was at work talking to someone when it started to hurt, and I sat down to rest thinking I’d feel better. An hour went by and it hurt worse and worse to the point I had to call an ambulance and fainted while still on the phone.
I woke up in the ER with people asking me all these questions of what happened, etc. Finally I told them my heart was killing me, and they got a chest X-Ray. Turns out it was my lung from the X-ray and they did a quick operation on me while awake to drain out all the leaked air. I asked for a towel to cover my entire head so I couldnt see what was going on. Hurt like hell and made my left arm feel weak.
Well finally after 4 days of being high on morphine and other pain meds, I’m fine. After they took the tubes out of me, I felt 0 pain, so no need to fill that prescription for pills hurray!
This was probably one of the scariest moments in my life, I thought I’d die honestly, but I’m glad to be back in action.
