Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary Hypertension



Five years ago I had a third of my right lung removed because of neuro endocrine cancer. During the second year a physical indicated that I had an elevated diaphragm and ever since then I have trouble breathing and get very tired, sometimes with very little activity. There are times when I am active for a few hours and as long as I pace myself I have little problems. Could I have PH and if so could this be the problem of my shortness of breath and being tired???


It is hard to say on the information you provide. The symptoms of PH are shortness of breath and fatigue; however, several other conditions my present with the symptoms you are experiencing. I would suggest that you discuss this with your doctor.
