How Does it Feel if You Have a Punctured Lung?

If you think you have a punctured lung you need to go to the hospital straight away.

A punctured lung can happen because of illness: a lung infection or cancer can cause a weak spot on the lungs which then becomes a tiny hole.

It can also happen because of an accident in which the ribs are broken: the sharp ends of the broken ribs puncture the lungs.

What Happens When Your Lung is Punctured?

A punctured lung (called Pneumothorax) will make the lung itself collapse. Air will not be able to go into the lung, and so you’ll find it hard to breathe.

What Are the Symptoms?

You will feel breathless, dizzy, and faint. You will find it hard to breathe. Because it is associated with injuries to the ribs, they may hurt a lot. Call an ambulance if you are having any trouble breathing.

What Will the Hospital do?

They will give you oxygen initially, and insert a suction tube which will re-inflate the lung. They can check through regular x-rays whether the lung has satisfactorily re-inflated. They will also give you painkillers to make sure that you breathe as deeply as you should.

Usually the punctured lung will heal itself. Sometimes the hospital will decide on surgery to find where the hole is and mend it.

Do I Need Time off Work?

You will most likely need time off work while your lung heals. Because your lungs are not at full capacity, you’ll find it hard to breathe, so you won’t be up to full strength. There may also be a need for strong painkillers, especially if you have other injuries, and these will also affect both your strength and your ability to complete tasks.
