  • It means that there was damage to the lungs that has healed, but that doesn't mean there is full function.

  • think of the lungs like a sponge, when you use the sponge over and over sucking liquids in and out it can tears the cells in that sponge, causing it to be a little lax next time it absorbs, same thing applies to the lungs, something happened that made them overwork and took basic wear and tear a little too fast, its normal though, anyone who has had pnumonia has at least a little damnage
