User avatar Hi babygurl8_125,
There may be several factors associated with a spontaneous pneumothorax, ie., lung disease, (asthma, copd, etc.), rupture of small "blebs' or air sacs in the lung, injury related, or the causative factor may not be identified. The specialists at the children's hospital, where you were treated can identify if you have any of the risk factors associated with this problem. The anxiety may be related to the pneumothorax itself and the fear of another episode. Once you have been given a clean bill of health so to speak, (no asthma etc.) then that should decrease your anxiety. Please be sure to discuss your concerns with your physician.
Sincerely,
Theresa Jones, RN
