  • After bypass surgery, should I go for a pulmonary check up too?

    In general, even if you do not have or had lung problems prior or after your surgery, seeing a lung specialist is a good idea. Bypass surgery can cause several lung complications such as paralysis of the left diaphragm, pleural effusion (fluid around the lung), among others. If you have a history of prior lung diseases like COPD, asthma, or have persistent shortness of breath, cough, or chest pain in areas other than the sternum surgical incision, for example, then you very likely need to see your pulmonologist. I hope you are doing well after your surgery and my answer helpful. Alex Lechin READ MORE
