Feb 3, 2017 · Phrenic Nerve Injury - David's Story

My lung doctor sent me for a sniff test (special exray which is shown on a monitor). It was determined my right diaphragm was frozen in place. So, I cannot inhale or exhale with the right lung. I assume it was Phrenic Nerve damage during surgery after a tech suggested it was during a recent interveinness stress test. Hope this helps. Sorry but what is a M.A.I.?

A special X-ray called a “Sniff Test” will show if the diaphragm is paralyzed. My lung doctor set it up. Good luck and health to you.

While doing some research on UCLA I read your story. I hope they were able to fix your right eyelid. God bless you for your service and the sacrifice you made for our country. I pray you are getting all the medical you need and deserve.

The symptoms you are describing sounds like mine. I now have restrictions on what I can do. Bending over cuts my breathing off. Just getting in the bed at night I have to start gasping for air until I get my oxygen level back up. I’m sure it’s Phrenic nerve damage from what I’ve been told and read up on. My right diaphragm is paralyzed according to the Lung doctor.

Have they done a sniff test?

I have been told the nerve was probably damaged during my surgery. What test or procedure was performed on you to show it was nerve damage? I recently had a CT of the abdomen and pelvic area but my GI Doctor said it wouldn’t show the nerve. Please advise. Thank you
