Hi @johnnyv46, welcome to Connect. Sometimes fear can paralyze us. I get that. But only by asking questions can we find answers to get help. That’s why I’m glad you had the courage to ask your question here on Connect today.
I’m inviting fellow Connect members @katemn @elsinann @Paula_MAC2007 @pd02 @nadine66 into this discussion. They all are dealing with a lung condition of one type or another and have experienced lower lung capacity.
Johnny, what lung condition do you have? Tell us a bit more about yourself.

Thank you for your thoughtful response. I will be going for a battery of lung tests on May 31, 2016 and will better understand what 15% lung capacity means in the overall scheme of things, as it relates to my empyema.
I’ll will keep you posted and again thank you.
