Zephyr Valve Surgery

Zephyr Valve Surgery

I was wondering if any of you have had zephyr valves put in and how you feel about them. Has it improved your life, are you able to do things without using oxygen, what did you have to go through to get them?

Any information you could share would be much appreciated. My doctor feels I would be a good candidate for this procedure.

Thanks for your input.

After being in here for a few years, I got concerned about her DX. Thankfully, it had to be ordered by the pharmacy so I said, Hold off on that till I ask some more questions. Research showed me that a pulmonologist should be… read more

I'm not so sure of that seeing a pulmonologist. I saw mine this past week & have decided not to go back to her. For the little she does my primary care Dr. does more for me.
