Scar tissue on lungs after surgery
I have scar tissue on my lungs after unrelated surgery, which causes sometimes quite a bit of pain. Will this ease in time?
It is difficult to answer your question without more information about the type of surgery and why you have scar tissue. Pain after surgery does often ease with time but without more details it is difficult to answer your question. I would recommend that you discuss this with your physician.
