Lung Cancer Home > Lung Problems After Pneumonectomy
There are several kinds of lung problems that can happen after a pneumonectomy. Some of these are:
- Blood or fluid in or outside the lung
- Lung failure.
Patients who already have lung disease have a greater chance of experiencing lung problems after a pneumonectomy. The treatment will depend on how it happened and how severe the problem is. If there is a problem, your healthcare professional will talk with you about what the best treatment is for your situation.
