I had a lung needle biopsy yesterday.
afterwards they gave me a chest x ray and my lung had slightly collapsed.
They kept me in the hospital for 6 hours and gave me chest xrays every 2 hours. The lung stayed the same.
They felt the lung would heal itself.

They sent me home and said if I had problems breathing to come back to the emergency department.


How long does the body take to heal this?...Could I have a total lung collapse...let say in a week? or I should be okay if it didn't happen by now.

It's been 24 hours since the procedure.

Thank you.
