New Surgery Option to Breath Easier with Emphysema

Traditionally, drugs, inhalers, surgery or a lung transplant were the only ways to help people with severe emphysema. Now tiny valves may help some who want to avoid a major operation....

Hi Everyone,

I did what Roy said and clicked on "Discuss this video". That way everyone gets to see it. I am not sure if it will stay in our group or just pass through. Will have to see.

Wishing everyone way more good days, than bad.

Big Hugs,

Doris

This is absolutely phenomenal!!!!! It gave me hope. I am not sure if it is still in the trial stage, though. The Dr. said "if this works it is going to revolutionize how we treat advanced emphysema".

Apparently, it worked for this lady!! That is awesome!! Just have to wait and see if she is ok with it. Wow...i still cannot believe it!! HOPE!!

Hugs,

Doris
