Patient :I had a spontaneous neumothorax about 9 years ago. I have suffered with severe chest pain since, and always told it is anxiety or that it is from the scar tissue, from the surgery. Along with the severe chest pain, I have been suffering from chronic low back pain, horrific periods, many ovarian cysts and am having trouble walking now, from the pain near my pelvic area. After numerous visits to my gyno, I have been diagnosed with endometriosis, and am having a hysterectomy in two weeks. I have now been reading about endometriosis in the lungs, and realized I hadn't told my gyno about my previous lung collapse. Could my lung collapse and pelvic endometriosis be connected?
