4 days ago · No cause found for recurring right hemidiaphragm paralysis in Lung Health

Merry, may I correct you, It's called the phrenic nerve. Two of them, one for each diaphragm.

Brenda, It's John, I'm glad to hear the diaphragmatic plication worked for you. After reading about Brian I was a bit concerned. I have a couple of questions. Did your doctor get your phrenic nerve checked out? I'm thinking this would be the first thing to get checked. May I ask where you had the surgery done? As I mentioned to Brian in an earlier post the only place I could find was Cedars-Sinai Hospital in LA. As far as getting the phrenic nerve checked for me that would be the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale AZ . Take care

Hey Brian this is John, I saw your post about your paralyzed right diaphragm and the surgery you had. I also have a paralyzed right diaphragm. Been dealing with it for just over a year. I have done some research on the diaphragm plication surgery from the Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles. Cedars was the only place I could find close to where I live. From there website the information that I got, they are saying the surgery is done by minimally invasive means. That does not sound like what you went through. Maybe things have changed since the three years since you had the surgery done. I might have to check with Cedars and get some more info. Physically I'm not doing to bad, I still swim as much as I can, go for walks and do other exercises. I also do breathing exercises. I'm trying like hec to stay ahead of this thing without surgery. Good to hear from you. I hope things get better, take care

Jennifer, been doing the Bowen technique about two months now and haven't really noticed any change. I don't believe we have anyone in the town I live that is certified on Facial. Still swimming though and doing as much exercise as I can.

May I ask what kind of problems? Has it been confirmed a phrenic nerve?

Had some more of the Bowen technique on Monday. Haven't noticed any improvement in the pool. It make take some time. Therapist friend of mine did some fascial work on me today. Kind of wore me out. Maybe she didn't do it correctly. We will keep plugging along.
