Could I have collapsed lung? previously had 2

Patient

Q: I have shortness of breath, fatigue and this has been getting worse over that past 1-2 weeks. A few years ago I was on life support and just before I was put on life support (for other reasons), I obtained 2 collapsed lungs with a phrenic abscess which had to be drained. I am worried I could have a very slight collapsed lung as I have had two in the past. Could this be it, or is there usually pain? I can'y catch my breath, although it's not like I'm struggling to breath completely, or could I have asthma?

Symptoms:  Shortness of breath, fatigue, high heart rate
