Qualifying for Zephyr valves for emphysema after lung cancer
I was told that Zephyr valves are not denied automatically because a person had cancer. I'm curious as to whether they have been approved for anyone who's experienced a VATs resection for 1a NSCLC, and also has Emphysema. I'm fortunate to be cancer free for four years now, and at 5 years will stop follow-up with my thoracic surgeon. Shortness of breath makes it difficult for me to engage in a conversation with others without sounding like I've run a marathon.
