    Has anyone ever flown after having collapsed lung? My husband had one a few weeks ago, it is healing, but there is still air in his chest cavity. Wondering if anyone has flown after this and how they have done. It will be almost 2 months after when we fly.

    I have. I had lung cancer surgery in March 2012 and lost 1/2 of my left lung. Doctor said I couldn't fly for 3 months due to him deflating lung during surgery. I got a final ok in June and everything was fine. Call your doctor if you are not sure. The could tell by my CT scan that I was ok to fly.
