Reduced breathing capacit
Hello, I was previously diagnosed with Koch's syndrome and I was prescribed 6 months of medication. The size of my left lung looked like it had contracted/reduced and ever since, my breathing capacity has been severely reduced. I also feel a kind of dense heaviness (for lack of a better word) in that area.

I think you have post pulmonary tuberculosis restrictive lung disease with thick pleura peel. In this condition pt have difficulty in breathing, chest pain & heaviness. If there is pus in thoracic cavity than situation still worsen. Pt have high grade fever and some sign of toxemia. In this condition pt need surgery ( decartication ). So please consult a thoracic surgeon, need to evaluate ur general status for surgery or proper treatment. Eighter u go for CECT THOREX & PFT and further contact me.
